Hear Widowspeak’s Dark, Prairie-Crawling ‘Calico’

Widowspeak 'Calico' The Swamps EP Stream

It was only January when SPIN interviewed Widowspeak on the occasion of the release of their debut album Almanac. But the bicoastal Amer-psych-ana strummers have a new EP due out October 29 via Captured Tracks. Stereogum has shared an advance taste of The Swamps via the song “Calico,” a brooding prairie-crawler featuring the sweet vocals of Molly Hamilton and the shimmering guitar of Robert Earl Thomas. The six-song set will also include “True Believer,” which finds the duo at the height of their hazy, loping game.

1. “Theme From the Swamps”
2. “Smoke and Mirrors”
3. “Calico”
4. “Brass Bed”
5. “True Believer”
6. “The Swamps”
