8/10 Mike Staff review, 23 October 2013

Ever since I’ve worked here I’ve kept seeing records by this band coming in and out of the shop and I’ve somehow managed to go all these years. Finally I get to answer some (but not all) of my burning questions about this band today. Who are they? What do they sound like? Is it pronounced “widow speak” or “widow’s peak”?

As it turns out they play understated alt-country/Americana type business with breathy girl vocals and nice silky harmonies and simple arrangements. It’s quite a slick folk-pop concoction and it’s not hard to see why so many people keep buying their records, kind of dreamy and ‘60s-sounding like that recent La Luz album which I enjoyed a lot, but with less surf guitar and more downbeat Ella Guru-ish sadpop. The swooning tropical guitars and ghostly doo-wop call and response of ‘True Believer’ provide the highlight here for me but it’s a pretty strong EP. I expected Widowspeak to be naffer than this for some reason but by this showing they’re actually very pleasant.
