[stream] Widowspeak "Ballad of the Golden Hour" / playing Great Scott January 27

Last year, the self-titled debut album by Brooklyn's Widowspeak was a collective favorite around the Phoenix's newsroom. Today the band announced details regarding a follow-up record, Almanac, out January 22 via Captured Tracks. Surrounding the new release, they'll play a short run of dates around the Northeast, including a stop at Great Scott on January 27th, presented by the Phoenix. Here's one track off the new album, "Ballad of the Golden Hour".

And for good measure, here's a cut from their excellent debut record. Fun fact: according to one indie-rock folk myth, this song was written about their first show ever outside of New York, at Great Scott in January 2011.
