Widowspeak: (Self-Titled)

Widowspeak has a ground sound.  This is the group’s debut album and it is high-quality.  There is a nice range of guitar sounds, from acoustic rhythms to jangly surf hooks and clean fills.  These songs sound familiar and gentle, yet, have a quiet darkness to them.  The production comes from Jarvis Taveniere from the great psych/folk band Woods and it seems he lent some of his sound and wistfully reflective mood to this album.  I expect more good things to come from Widowspeak in the years to come.  Don’t miss this one!
