Grass Widow 'Pass Times'
They had me with their cover of Urinals 'Black Hole'.
The all girl three piece from San Francisco have an album and EP (Make a Mess and Captured Tracks respectively) already under their belts. 'Past Time' released on the renowned Kill Rock Stars label is their sophomore offering. Astral harmonies and frenetic drums instantly bring Young Marble Giants to mind. Grass Widows aren't challenging that in any way, rather bringing new blood to a type of music that has seen quite a resurgence lately. There's so much going on in the album repeated listens means you'll continuously find new things to love about this 25 minute stunner.
