True Widow
True Widow
Dallas trio TRUE WIDOW craft patient, rounded music that calls to mind images of
foggy dawns and parched fields. Formed in November 2007, TRUE WIDOW released
their self-titled debut a year later and immediately caught the ears of the underground. At its core, the music of TRUE WIDOW is powered by the driving, guitar-dense aspects of shoegaze and stoner rock and the heavy, low-moving evocations of ambient music.
Following their auspicious start, the band returned in 2011 with their sophomore full length, As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth. As High As The Highest Heavens saw the band solidify their direction and further mature their sound, but it wasn’t until 2013’s Circumambulation (TRUE WIDOW’s debut album for independent label Relapse Records) that they reached the heights - both professionally and compositionally - they have now. Circumambulation garnered the band widespread praise both within and beyond the metal world and was praised by publications as diverse as Pitchfork, NPR, Decibel Magazine, and Metal Injection. The band followed up the success of that album with extensive touring across the US, Russia, and Europe, including numerous appearances at renowned festivals such as Roadburn, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Psycho California, and more.
This year, Avvolgere, the forthcoming LP from Texas trio TRUE WIDOW, perfects the
formula that Circumambulation established. The album rocks and rolls with serene, rounded climaxes and steep, jangling choruses that engulf the listener with waves of downbeat, saccharine melodies and mesmerizing distortion. TRUE WIDOW’s signature alternation between male and female vocals helps further blur the boundaries between the heft of stoner rock, the droning atmosphere of shoegaze, and the twangy catchiness of blues and indie rock. It’s both concise and circuitous - the album takes you on a journey that you can’t ever quite predict or expect. Avvolgere is TRUE WIDOW sounding more infectious and consummate than ever before.
Idle Bloom
Idle Bloom
Idle Bloom is a four-piece band that is emboldened through textures. The Nashville based project is composed of Olivia (vocals & guitars), Callan (vocals & guitar), Katie (bass), and Weston (drums). They recently completed their debut E.P, "Some Paranoia", recorded by Shibby Poole and mastered by Jade Payne. The songs are haunting yet empowering; enticing with lyrics and vocals that demand to be heard and the instruments achieve soothing qualities that, just as poignantly, become jarring.

Idle Bloom came together in 2014 and had their first show at the Exit/In on March 17th, a venue they frequented separately and finally occupied together. Prior to assembling, Olivia and Katie played side-by-side in Fancytramp and pushed each other to grow musically until they met Callan and Weston, who are fundamental in evolving the layering of sounds they have today.

"Some Paranoia" is the perfect showcase of Idle Bloom's need to explore new territory. No two songs sound alike, and yet it reads like a cohesive story. The way this band accesses different states, musicians and various art forms results in a complex sonic weave. They defy being subjected to one genre and, in turn, blow away listeners with their unique onstage presence and sound that cannot be duplicated.
