Deli NYC CD of the Month: Widowspeak

Deli NYC CD of the Month: Widowspeak

Your average record reviewer would ideally always (and only) write about incredibly original, mind blowing bands whose music will change the course of rock history. Until a group like Widowspeak comes along to remind him a few things. The Brooklyn based trio isn't putting on our musical table particularly mind blowing or esoteric ingredients: Mazzy Star's dreamy folk, Cowboy Junkies' spare, blue atmospheres, some good old Paysley Underground psychedelia, and the unmissable pop element. But they do it so darn well that we can't help to remind ourselves (for the thousandth time) how uniqueness isn't all that important when you have a bunch of great songs, spot on arrangements, and a voice that somehow hits you. Speaking of which... Molly Hamilton's cheerless and child-like  soprano is adorable and engrossing at once, and her simple but always interesting melodies are a crucial element in what's noteworthy about this band. Robert Thomas and Michael Stasiak - on guitar and drums - create the perfect balance of intriguing but not over-powering parts to support her talent.
