Almanac by Widowspeak
Released: Jan 2013
Label: Captured Tracks
File Widowspeak under "deliciously dreamy pop." The group's second release expands on their shoegazing psych-folk reveries, which fall somewhere between Mazzy Star's soporific sounds and The Cowboy Junkies doing "Sweet Jane." Vocalist Molly Hamilton does a spot-on Hope Sandoval with her wispy narcotic purr, which swims through an ocean of guitars that timidly jangle and twang. A propulsive rhythm section drives tracks like "Ballad of the Golden Hour" and "Locusts," while sleepier melodies "Thick as Thieves" and "Sore Eyes" are as ghostly and rustic as a fog-rich forest at dawn.
