Widowspeak, Pure Bathing Culture

BRANDON WIDDER
9 pm., Thursday October 24 | $10.
Bunk Bar
1028 SE Water Ave.
 
[MODERN MAZZY] There’s an off-putting familiarity accompanying Widowspeak vocalist Molly Hamilton as her breathy croon trails the distant, ringing guitar on the opening to Almanac. As the duo’s second LP, the album is baked with similar moments—a pinch of searing Neil Young-esque guitar here, a dab of Real Estate ambiance there—culminating in an Americana-rich sound not totally unexpected from an uprooted Tacoma duo residing in Brooklyn. Guitarist Robert Earl Thomas’ acoustic stroll on “Minnewaska” is benign, Hamilton’s eschatology-informed musings on “Dark Ages” alarming, yet both reveal differing rooms in the same foggy house.
