Jordan’s Pick: Almanac, Widowspeak

Despite its February release, the sophomore record from this Brooklyn band has a witchy harvest moon glow. Molly Hamilton’s drowsy crystalline vocals sit as the crown jewel among Robert Thomas’ interstellar overdrive guitar figures. Sure, the “Fleetwood Mac in High Def!” comparisons are tiresome -but fairly accurate. Hypnotic drums from Kyle Jacques will lull you into a pop dreamworld, but listener beware: These cats have claws.
