Mother is the third studio album by Greek singer and Iaouto player George Xylouris and Australian drummer Jim White, released in January 2018 via Kasumuen Records in Australia and Bella Union Records in the UK.

The Xylouris White collaboration was established in 2013. The two musicians first met in Melbourne in 1990, when Xylouris was touring with his father, Antonis Xylouris, and became friends. White first played with Xylouris' family band in Australia in 2009. They began recording and performing regularly in public together in New York City in late 2013. They released their first album, Goats, in 2014; it topped the Billboard World Music chart. Their second album Black Peak followed in 2016.

The duo's music has been described as combining "free-jazz, avant-rock and ages-old Greek folk traditions."

A passion for exploration comes naturally to Xylouris White. Across their brand new album Mother’s nine tracks, they nurture fecund growths from the spaces between their instruments. Sometimes the songs drive with an invigorating urgency; sometimes they brood, plead, yearn and lull. The duo seem to discover each other anew at every turn, teasing the songs out from their fluid chemistry with the kind of virtuosity that knows when to listen, accommodate and learn afresh.

Produced by long-time collaborator Guy Piccioto (Fugazi), the album has been named to denote 'new life’. As Xylouris says, “’Mother’ is the extension of ’Ghosts’ and ’Black Peak’. Three things, all part of a whole. Goats are mothers, Zeus was raised on Amaltheia's milk, Black Peak is Mother's Earth... Mother Earth is the mother of everything.“

Themes of simplicity and child-like innocence run through the album.

Check out the tracks:  Daphne”; and “Only Love”.

This LP record is on black vinyl with an inner sleeve, pressed in Australia.
