Reminder:: Donovan Woods The Widowmaker

I know, I know. You don’t want us reminding you about records over and over again, but it seems like a gentle reminder that Donovan Woods has a new record, out now on Bearsuit Publishing. When I reviewed the record, it was still a self-release, so seeing Woods get some love from a label is long overdue. The Widowmaker is a solid collection of stories, but one that finds Woods expanding his sonic palette to include pace, banjo, synths, hand claps without sacrificing emotion.

 

I know as days turn into weeks, we consume new songs and forget the past, but The Widowmaker is one worth grasping tight. Luckily, Donovan sat down with Mitch over at Southern Souls to play “Lawren Harris” allowing me another opportunity to plead to you… “Give this guy a listen!”

Is there a physical version of the album?

Ugh — I’m with Mike. I’d buy this CD in a second… if one existed! I would really like a physical copy of it but it doesn’t seem to exist. I’m looking all over the place! Looks like he’ll have to come to Ottawa and play a show so at least I could buy something he burned himself!
