Sometimes music can be so serious and heavy, and sometimes that is pretty cool. We're definitely big proponents of light times and all that, but when a song comes along that actually makes good use of bummer vibes, it's worth noting. "Nightcrawlers" is just one dusky, smokey, full bodied track from Widowspeak’s self-titled album on Captured Tracks, but it's also a good taste of what the album offers as a whole: non-corny emotional times sung huskily over beautifully calculated guitars. Dig up some angst (or don't) and catch Widowspeak on tour at one of the dates below.
