Weekly RecommNeds: The Growlers / Widowspeak

Twang!

The Growlers: Hung at Hearts

Hailing from Southern California, the Growlers’ third album sounds like Roy Orbison on acid on a surfboard – the entire album seemingly put through a reverb meat grinder whole. I mean every little bit of this music echoes with thick reverb amongst other embellishments. The sound is unique and infectious and a lot of fun.  My favorite track is definitely One Million Lovers, one of the best songs of the early year.

Widowspeak: Almanac

From the other coast comes Widowspeak who feature two diametrically opposed forces: the bewitching, ethereal voice of Molly Hamilton and the cosmic twang rock and roll guitar of Robert Earl Thomas. Combined they create a sound that is equal parts dreamy and fanged. Their sophomore release shows a band ready to take the next step after endless live performances.
