Even when stepping away from their electric monolith sounds, as on opening
acoustic track “For Grace,” True Widow displays an innate understanding of
the space between the notes, and the stormy tensions that can arise from
them. Under cover of a bluegrass motif, guitarist D.H. introduces a new
chapter of their story, one which brings about feelings of decay and returning
to the earth in its wavering, finger-picked threnody. The title track follows,
fourteen and a half minutes of sonorous dirge, relies on single-chord riffing
and minor-key derivations, as opposed to the cyclical compositions found on
their last full-length As High as the Highest Heavens and From the Center to
the Circumference of the Earth. This brooding leads “I.N.O.” to more abstract
directions than any other True Widow offering thus far, experimenting with
percussion-free drone elements, surprise surges in tempo and intensity, and at
the ten-minute mark, a drop-in to silence, fading down into the depths and
return changed and surreal. The EP closes with three more brand new songs,
clued in to what True Widow does best: creating a large, heavy space that
eschews the trappings of what we know “large” and “heavy” to mean in the
context of modern rock music; songs with drive but not necessarily aggression,
volume but not overload, a peaceful protest against garish imagery and
attentionbreaking riff-fests.

Mexican Summer present "As High As The Highest Heavens And From The
Center To The Circumference Of The Earth" by True Widow due for release
on the 13th May 2016.
Here is a band that has figured out how to play music that is traditionally
recognized as "heavy" and "slow," on traditional rock instruments, in a way
that few have been able to accomplish: a melancholy, meditative approach
to songwriting and soundscape that draws you in. They figured this out in
the space of one album a self-titled debut from 2008. On As High As the
Highest Heavens, they refine the work even further. Big guitar, bigger
drums and the biggest bass effortlessly recreate the unending skies of
prairie America, where storms blow across with fury, horizons are
unencumbered by the choke of skyscrapers and electric light, and the
atmosphere pushes you down. A rumbling backdrop of distortion churns
away, both behind and within True Widow's plaintive song structures, but
never overpowers it. Across a 50-minute runtime, the nine songs here
range from excavated alt-rock anthems ("Night Witches," "Skull Eyes" ) to
methodical epics like "Boaz" and "Blooden Horse," to triumphant bulldozers
of sound like "NH" which splits the difference between dirge and hymn, the
instruments staring into the ground while D.H. and Nikki's voices ascend to
the clouds.
