ALBUM REVIEW: The Weeping Willows – Before Darkness Comes A-Callin’


ptw scorebw8Melbourne alt-country and folk duo The Weeping Willows recorded their sophomore album in Los Angeles and as such it has a lived-in, warm and lush sound. Their authenticity and craft as singers, as songwriters and in Andrew Wriggleworth’s sublime guitar playing makes this a hypnotic and alluring album. They’ve taken a detour down some darker and moodier paths this time and it works exceedingly well. Dark folk, blues and country musings on nature, death and doomed romance suit them well and puts Wrigglesworth and Laura Coates right up there with the finest Americana music you’ll hear this year.
