Grass Widow w/Fancytramp & Psychic HotlinePop/Rock
Being the subject of the stupidest Vice “album review” ever written — and that’s saying something — is a dubious distinction, for sure. (“Imagine having a sweet, high-pitched lady-voice and getting together with a couple of other women and some guitars and making your slightly different voices all sync up as tautly as your periods.”) But Grass Widow needn’t take any mess off anyone, and the San Francisco-based trio — Hannah Lew, Lillian Maring and Raven Mahon, whose first initials form the name of their record label HLR — ably carry the torch of Bay Area forebears like The Aislers Set, melding post-punk hooks and surfy three-part harmonies over elemental rhythms. Simply put, it’s indie pop in the best sense of the term. And Grass Widow might be the only band going that could make EMF’s “Unbelievable” sound like a long-lost Breeders outtake.
