Widowspeak- 'The Swamps' EP
Widowspeak give way to a recognisable dark hazy sound similar to Mazzy Star with the release of new EPMore on Various Artists
It quickly gives way to calmer and more familiar waters, though: ‘Calico’ is a psych-blues slither dripping with Deep South swamp-rot, and ‘Brass Bed’ and ‘True Believer’ are both slices of country whimsy lamenting the sweet air of romantic stagnation, like Mazzy Star lounging in a tin bath full of poppers.
