Album Stream: Grass Widow – Internal Logic

You can stream Grass Widow’s new album, Internal Logic, above — courtesy of Stereogum. Opening track “Goldilocks Zone” suggests a slight distancing from the love of ’60s garage-rock and girl-pop shown on 2010’s Past Time, and into darker psych-rock territory. The gargles of synth in the beginning would make one suspect the direction of ELO’s “Telephone Line”, but that incorporation is background at most. “Just drive, just drive,” the vocal ensemble repeats over a quickly rotating bass line and single-note guitar fixtures throughout the track. Everything rhythmic is typical of post-punk, but the vocals and guitar work sit in more ambitious psych-rock territory. It’s a track dripping with tightly-wound anticipation, setting up an album that seems like their most confident yet.
