Widowspeak release new album All Yours, gear up for summer US tour

You can call Widowspeak a dreampop band, sure, but they’re the dreampop of dusty rural American backroads, of towns with shuttered main streets and transitory carnivals that pop up in open fields, only to disappear days later and head on along down the old highway. After two releases in 2013 and a move for the Catskills/Hudson Valley region, the core duo of Molly Hamilton and Robert Earl Thomas are back now with All Yours, a new album for Captured Tracks set to drop September 4.

Molly went back to school. Rob got a job at a hotel. They got a house where they could play music. They got a dog. They tried to fix up the ol’ property, but wacky mishaps and nosy neighbors just kept gettin’ in their goshdarn way. OK, that might be a plot device from several 80s movies leaking in. That maybe didn’t happen. But they did make a new album with the help of producer Jarvis Taveniere, who worked with them on their 2011 self-titled debut. The fine people of Quilt also pop up on the release, making everything more harmonious and shit. And now they want to share it with you!
