Widowspeak is a Brooklyn band definitely on the up and up after their break out debut on Captured Tracks in 2011. In this session Widowspeak plays “Half Awake” a track off their self-titled debut, which immediately recalls the wistfulness of Mazzy Star and early Cat Power. The song’s driving rhythm is punctuated by flashes of guitar solos, Molly Hamilton’s seductive voice, and patterned drums. It is a refreshingly cool sound with a timeless quality, precisely washed out in a dream-like ecstasy, perfectly in sync with its various parts. We invite you to check out the session w/ Widowspeak, again and again…
