Weekly Feature: Widowspeak, "I guess you’re just not that into us"

Man, these aloof Widowspeak hipster guys are making us GREEN! We love their music but they wouldn't play our shows (or even make a Facebook post about our coverage) to save their own lives. We must have tried to dat... ahem, book them half a dozen times by now and we are afraid it ain't gonna happen at this point... Their record came out about a year ago - cool beijey cover, mellow sounds, a beauty - but we met them way before then. It was The Deli NYC's Album of the Month in August 2011, and it still finds its way into our ears. The guys also placed 3rd in our latest Best of NYC Emerging Artists Poll, but they never really seemed to care much about this stuff... But wait! Fashion magazine "Interview" interviewed them the other day! They wrote a post on Facebook about it! Same thing with Noisevox, Wow Magazine, Vice Germany... what the heck Widowspeak?! You flirt with huge publications owned by even bigger corporations behind our back? INDIGNATION! BETRAYAL OF BROOKLYN DIY ETHICS! - Or maybe just jealousy of a small, unloved (but cute) local rag...
P.S.You were on the cover of our latest issue, did you even notice? - Read Ed Guardaro's feature on Widowspeak here.
