Widowspeak – “All Yours”

Yesterday we premiered “Girls,” the lead single off Widowspeak’s new album All Yours, and I bemoaned the loss of an old interview I’d done with the band about their gorgeous hair. Well, today two great new additions to this story: First, some internet wizard found an archived version of that interview on the deep web,… More »

Widowspeak – “Girls” (Stereogum Premiere)

Every once in a while it really irks me that AOL pulled most of their now-defunct music sites from the internet, because one of the first interviews I ever did was a truly incredible interview with Widowspeak about their rock and roll hair inspirations for Spinner. Alas, it is lost to the ether, but thankfully… More »

Over the past five years, Brooklyn indie label Captured Tracks has delivered a meticulously curated output, from superstars-in-their-own-right DIIV, Wild Nothing, Beach Fossils, and Mac DeMarco to reissues of ’80s UK indie pop luminaries like the Cleaners From Venus and the Wake with a legion of other artists in between. So it was more tha… More »

Widowspeak – “True Believer”

Brooklyn’s Widowspeak will play the festival celebrating the five-year anniversary of their excellent label, Captured Tracks, next month, but before that arrives, they’re dropping a new single. “True Believer” is pastel-hued, heavily drugged shoegaze-folk. It’s truly, sweepingly lovely. People would go insane if Mazzy Star dropped a new track tomorrow, but nothing Mazzy Star might… More »

Watch Bat For Lashes, Widowspeak Perform Love Songs For Vogue

Valentine’s Day being this week and all, Vogue is running a series of videos that show artists performing their love songs. That, in and of itself, isn’t big news at all, and it probably wouldn’t warrant a post, except for this: Both of the videos in the series thus far are really good. Yesterday, Widowspeak… More »

Widowspeak – “Locusts” Video

Widowspeak have released a video breathy jam “Locusts” from their sophomore LP Almanac. The black and white clip feels part-cleaned up warehouse gig and part-Lynchian late night television appearance, but wholly suited up with the song’s soft punch. Check it out below. More »

Widowspeak – “Thick As Thieves”

The float-happy Brooklyn reverb-head duo Widowspeak will release their sophomore album Almanac in a couple of weeks, and we’ve already posted their tracks “Ballad Of The Golden Hour” and “The Dark Age.” Now here’s another song, “Thick As Thieves,” a shivery and murky piece of British-folk-informed eeriness. Stream it below. More »

Widowspeak – “The Dark Age”

Brooklyn dream-rock duo Widowspeak will release their sophomore album Almanac next month, we’ve already heard their “Ballad Of The Golden Hour.” Now here’s the spindly, breathy “The Dark Age,” which falls on some aesthetic continuum between Mazzy Star and Television. It’s really good! Listen below. More »

In tandem with this announcement, they’ve released the first single as a download.
