Album Capsules--Widowspeak




Almanac, their second album, seems inferior to their self-titled first in almost every way.  Molly Hamilton's lazy, lilting voice seems reminiscent of Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star or Chan Marshall of Cat Power, but Widowspeak's music tends to rock more than those two bands--at the expense of drowning out Hamilton's voice.  All in all, Almanac surprises too little.  Here's "Thick as Thieves."
