Amoeba Review

01/21/2013

Brooklyn band Widowspeak sound like a young gyspy couple on their honeymoon on their second album, Almanac. Organ, mandolin and bass create a candlelight waltz on “Thick as Thieves, with Molly Hamilton’s lilting voice laying sweet, sexy nothings over it all. Elsewhere they’re more rollicking, as on the thumping “The Dark Age,” or in “Ballad of the Golden Hour’s” acoustic fireside ditty turned Western-flourished indie rock jam. Though they carefully cultivate their leather and lace aesthetic, Widowspeak indulge in space-rock (“Devil Knows”), Pixies-style jangle (“Spirit is Willing”) and other little diversions that prove there’s more to them than cool looks and amenable tunes. Widowspeak manage to be adventurous and mellowed out at the same time. You just want to hitch your wagon to theirs and see where they’ll head next.
