Widowspeak - "Ballad of the Golden Hour"
I posted about them way back in January, but I finally caught Widowspeak live last night when they opened for Iron & Wine here in Winnipeg. Certainly I've listened to Almanac several times since it came out back then, but it wasn't until hearing them in person that I finally put my finger on what I was hearing. Taking Reductive Reviews all the way back to its "this + this = that" roots, Widowspeak are if Julee Cruise fronted a version of Curve that came out of the American South. Hear it for yourself on their show-closer, "Ballad of the Golden Hour."
