Mad Mackerel Recommends…Grass Widow

We’re a bit late with this one we know, as it has been doing the blog rounds for a little while and we have been meaning to post it for ages.

The reason is we have caught ourselves humming and nodding along to Shadow by Grass Widow on countless occasions recently. It is from their forthcoming album Past Time, due next month on Kill Rock StarsGrass Widow are an all-girl trio from California released a self-titled LP last year which marked them out as ones to watch. This taster from the new album indicates they are more than likely to deliver on that initial promise.

Beguiling vocals with an almost pastoral feel complement perfectly the naggingly insistent and catchy guitar hook, which carries the song along in a perfect mix of contemporary psych-pop.

If you haven’t already, download it now and see if you can’t stop humming it within two or three plays.

Visit their MySpace here or website here.

Pre-order Past Time here.
