The Swamps EP, which Captured Tracks Records will be releasing on October 29th, serves as an informal bridge between Widowspeak’s sophomore effort, Almanac and a yet to be titled third full-length album which is slated for a Fall 2013 release. “True Believer” is the first single off The Swamps and it continues the band’s reputation for hauntingly gorgeous melodies, and hushed, delicate guitars – although on this single, the guitars have a gentle country twang. Molly Hamilton sings her lyrics with an ethereal, dreamy and slightly melancholic coo that reminds me a little bit of Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star, if produced by T Bone Burnett. More importantly though, the song is gorgeous and it’s left a lingering presence in my head that won’t escape and I think you’ll say the same.
