Hopefully Mom won't have to hold a yard sale to raise enough money for plane tickets.

Your Mom Is Really Getting Around...

Mom's debut EP, Little Brite, made quite an impression on us last year, earning a rave review and a Best of the Year recommendation.

Thanks to a Japanese release and a forthcoming European tour, music fans all over the world are about to hear what got us so excited last year.

The Japanese version of Little Brite, released August 8 on Moamoo, includes two extra tracks and a band-made video for "Sleep Whale," as well as different packaging. Those not planning a trip to Tokyo anytime soon can order it here for ¥2,000, plus ¥450 shipping and handling. That's about $22 in (weak) U.S. dollars.

But Mom won't settle for being big in Japan. After a couple weeks of touring the East Coast and Midwest with Voices and Organs, Mom will spend most of October in Europe, alongside fellow Texans This Will Destroy You. Stops include Paris, Brussels, Glasgow and London.--Jesse Hughey
