Here are a band that have settled in Brooklyn after decamping from their native cities of Tacoma and Lakewood, WA. I'm actually most enjoying their crisp, moody take on post-Mazzy Star rock. Singer Molly has one of those sultry and nonchalant voices that falls half way between Nina Nastasia and Hope Sandoval and the guitar, bass and drums dynamic creates an easy-going dusty, atmosphere shorn of any remotely fashionable trappings. Widowspeak create music that is at once soothing yet imbued with longing and regret. From a simple and pure framework these songs curl around your mind like the smoke from a lipstick smeared cigarette and stay there; your soul is taken hostage and you now demand Widowspeak all day and night!! A mere dalliance is not enough, these tunes are seductive and playful but also sad sad sad!! A pleasant change from the Captured Tracks stable. This doesn't sound at all '80s inspired like much output on the label but may well appeal to folks who like the misty-eyed end of college rock, Emma Pollock and earlier Cat Power.
