Grass Widow's sophomore release initially came out on Captured Tracks in 2009 and followed close on the heels of their self-titled debut album on Make a Mess Records. The 12-inch EP features three original tracks plus a cover of the Urinals' classic "Black Hole. “A diamond in the late-’00s roughs, SF’s Grass Widow is like a modern-day analogue to early Throwing Muses, Glass Eye, Salem 66, maybe even Scrawl—a band with ideas about structure and clarity that has bypassed much of the past few years of intentional grounding of aesthetics. Without necessarily bowing down to the concessions of defeat, there’s a sense that these women have something bigger going on, sort of a unifying theory between sweet sugar pop and a little something more to chew on. Here’s three great originals and a Urinals cover by a band which has fully awakened to its abilities. No obvious turns are taken in their songwriting, and the spaces in them are kept busy by a lot of interesting, cool-sounding things springing up from each corner. If nothing else, they have a melodic inventiveness that should keep everyone entertained, but there’s more here, and it’ll be exciting to hear what exactly that may be." Captured Tracks.
