Driven by Molly Hamilton’s wispy voice and supported by the guitar work of Robert Earl Thomas, Widowspeak seamlessly mirrors dreamy vocal lines with bright, spindly guitar solos. The lyrical content is at times pastoral, other times longing and often even fierce. Ultimately, the band might be the truest rock and roll band 2013 has to offer—think Stevie Nicks if she grew up listening to James Taylor.
