widowspeak - Widowspeak
**Debut album from Captured Tracks' psyche-pop outfit. Includes the haunting 'Harsh Realm' from their debut single, and the atmospheric swoon of 'Gun Shy' ripe for fans of Mazzy Star or Cat Power.** "The album, recorded at Rear House with Jarvis Taveniere of Woods, documents Widowspeak's inaugural year. In a relaxed studio setting songs born from those first jittery practices could breathe. The trio expanded their modest instrumentation while retaining a sparse aesthetic. The resulting record offers an eerie ambience, at times channeling 1950's jukebox pop, at others, 1960's psychedelia. While garnering comparisons to slow-moving 1990's acts such as Mazzy Star or Cat Power, Widowspeak have defined a sound that's earnestly nostalgic, and increasingly confident. Even so, these are songs about heartache. They are songs about homesickness, about longing for pine forests, reckless youth, and dark night in strange cities."
