Even when stepping away from their electric monolith sounds, as on openingacoustic track “For Grace,” True Widow displays an innate understanding ofthe space between the notes, and the stormy tensions that can arise fromthem. Under cover of a bluegrass motif, guitarist D.H. introduces a newchapter of their story, one which brings about feelings of decay and returningto the earth in its wavering, finger-picked threnody. The title track follows,fourteen and a half minutes of sonorous dirge, relies on single-chord riffingand minor-key derivations, as opposed to the cyclical compositions found ontheir last full-length As High as the Highest Heavens and From the Center tothe Circumference of the Earth. This brooding leads “I.N.O.” to more abstractdirections than any other True Widow offering thus far, experimenting withpercussion-free drone elements, surprise surges in tempo and intensity, and atthe ten-minute mark, a drop-in to silence, fading down into the depths andreturn 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 thateschews the trappings of what we know “large” and “heavy” to mean in thecontext of modern rock music; songs with drive but not necessarily aggression,volume but not overload, a peaceful protest against garish imagery andattentionbreaking riff-fests.

Mexican Summer present "As High As The Highest Heavens And From TheCenter To The Circumference Of The Earth" by True Widow due for releaseon the 13th May 2016.Here is a band that has figured out how to play music that is traditionallyrecognized as "heavy" and "slow," on traditional rock instruments, in a waythat few have been able to accomplish: a melancholy, meditative approachto songwriting and soundscape that draws you in. They figured this out inthe space of one album a self-titled debut from 2008. On As High As theHighest Heavens, they refine the work even further. Big guitar, biggerdrums and the biggest bass effortlessly recreate the unending skies ofprairie America, where storms blow across with fury, horizons areunencumbered by the choke of skyscrapers and electric light, and theatmosphere pushes you down. A rumbling backdrop of distortion churnsaway, both behind and within True Widow's plaintive song structures, butnever overpowers it. Across a 50-minute runtime, the nine songs hererange from excavated alt-rock anthems ("Night Witches," "Skull Eyes" ) tomethodical epics like "Boaz" and "Blooden Horse," to triumphant bulldozersof sound like "NH" which splits the difference between dirge and hymn, theinstruments staring into the ground while D.H. and Nikki's voices ascend tothe clouds.
