    Widowspeak has released an intimate recording of two tracks of their 2012 album Almanac, the first being an instrumental title track leading into the second, "Ballad of the Golden Hour." The Brooklyn band talks about how the American landscape and the changing of seasons have influenced their sound on the record (which we reviewed here).

    Widowspeak plays a gentle brand of fuzzy, evocative Americana folk rock, and vocalist/guitarist Molly Hamilton bares her soul with whispering vocals while Robert Earl Thomas slides around his electric guitar in "Golden Hour," a song on which, Thomas confesses, "we tried to steal the drum beat from a Tom Petty song." They feel that this two-song set is the centerpiece of Almanac.
