Each month, Psychic Tuesday spotlights a musician or band that,for one reason or another, remains obscure, underrated and deserving of so much more attention than they've been given.
This is more or less what the "Focal Point" series is all about. It doesn't matter if the band or musician is brand new or was around many years ago. Some music simply NEEDS to be heard!
August's focal point, Grass Widow is one of those bands. Hailing from San Francisco, Grass Widow [Hannah Lew (bass, vocals), Raven Mahon (guitar, vocals), and Lillian Maring, (drums, vocals) ] write their hypnotic layered melodies collaboratively.
Their haunting songs, rich in metaphor and couched in reference and allusion, are mined from the personal narratives of each. Vocal duties shared equally all around complete the overall sensibility. Grass Widow has no front person but offers a fresh musical experience not based on celebrity or spectacle.
