Widowspeak: All Yours

However mythologically epic the life of the "rock star" might be, the actual truth can be a lot more prosaic. In the case of Widowspeak, after their drummer left in 2012, life marched on. The remaining duo finished up a couple of records in 2013 while living in Brooklyn, then left for a quieter life in the bucolic Hudson Valley, where Molly went back to school and Rob started working at a local hotel. But the music was, by no means, silenced. Just allowed to happen in its own time.

Thankfully, that time is now, as their new album, All Yours, is released by acclaimed label Captured Tracks on 9/4. Widowspeak's gorgeously languid tunes match its pace of creation, with songs like "Cosmically Aligned" drifting along like a less guitar-pedal heavy version of Mazzy Star in a country-waltz time. Members of the band Quilt help out throughout, as do the rhythm section of Woods, lending extra touches that make All Yours Widowspeak's most complete record to date. So kick back, imagine yourself out on the porch amongst the green Catskills and enjoy a great new record!
