Over the summer, Widowspeak, Caveman, Yellow Ostrich, the Pearl and the Beard, Belle Mare, and Vensaire performed at Consequence of Sound’s and the Wild Honey Pie’s Summer Camp, a lakefront property just outside of New York City. Since it was a summer camp, there were the typical summer camp activities as well as sets by all of the previously mentioned bands during the course of a weekend. With the nights getting cooler, let’s all have one more memory of summer, huh?
Widowspeak performed material from their forthcoming Captured Tracks release True Believer EP. “Thick As Thieves” is one of the gorgeous singles from that release, and it very clearly owes a great debt to the Smiths and Mazzy Star – it’s an ethereal song that leaves a lingering, haunting melody in your presence.
