mp3 | widowspeak | ballad of the golden hour

"ballad of the golden hour," the first single from widowspeak's upcoming, almanac, surfaced last month. the new album is set for a january 22 release date and since it's stated it so emphatically: jayson greene via pitchfork:

"... widowspeak treat their softly lit guitars like a dreamy glucose drip, and the song's edges are so cottony that the song's subtle dynamic build and effortless dilation from chorus to verse to extended jam to unexpected coda might not hit you until the ninth or tenth listen."

i would've just said the song was nice.  but whatever floats your boat.  stream the track above and (right click, save link as) download here.
