With all the Fleetwood Mac vibes this track gives off, it could be a really good song to kick off the fall season with. It seems like the song that matches the ambiance of nuzzling yourself in at the corner seat at a local coffee shop or slowly wandering through a cluttered, dusty book store.
Guitarist, Robert Earl Thomas, plucks the strings so quickly that things feel a little blue-grassy. The breezy acoustics compliment the hazy vocals of singer-songwriter, Molly Hamilton, so nicely. That’s the perfect example of how the duo combines each of their skill sets. “Plum” is an equal combination of each of their strong suits.
For a song that transports you to the easygoing countryside, you may be surprised to learn Widowspeak is based in Brooklyn, and “Plum” is the title track off their fifth album, which just came out this year.
