With any luck, I'm going to be interviewing these guys next week for TGIFR, but regardless of my luck, you're in luck if you haven't heard Myron & E before. These live takes are fantastic.

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."

God does Dybdahl have a beautiful voice. I've been transfixed by his new album What's Left Is Forever, and "Dice" remains one of my all-time favourite songs (seriously, how much is crammed into under two minutes?) Here's a live performance of "This Love Is Here To Stay," the wonderful lead-off track to the new album.
