Chelsea Wolfe is a Los Angeles singer-songwriter who makes dark, haunting music often described as folk-goth, that feels like the best parts of Siouxsie (without all the diva attitudes and overbearing personality). Her music sounds like it was made while stranded in the woods at night, and is full of echo and otherworldly atmospherics that give her songs weight and substance, while her vocals range from domineering lows to vulnerable peaks. Her noise and vocals swirl around each other, hypnotizing you on her latest album, Apocalypse, available now.
True Widow have released two previous albums: True Widow (2008) and As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth (2011).
Each release has built on the band's unique approach to the guitar-centric intersection of shoegaze and ambient pop, which the band self-described as "stonegaze," NPR described the band's sophomore release as "a warming headphone album for a bleak snowfall, moody and dreamy chords crushed by a rumbling low-end, " Decibel Magazine said the album is "a droning, strung-out record that is, frankly, almost perfect" and All Music said True Widow's guitar sound is "not so much detuned as it is shuddering."
