Album Review

Grass Widow – “Grass Widow” – [Make a Mess Records]

lombard   2/3/2010   12-inch, A Library

Recorded in 2008, this self-titled release by San Francisco-based Grass Widow came out in Spring 2009. The all-gal lineup (Lillian Maring on drums and vocals, Raven Mahon on guitar, vocals, and trumpet, and Hannah Lew on bass and vocals) crafts some pleasant, rocking sounds that bring to mind some of my favorite bands of the early 1990s riot grrrl scene.

Lovely harmonizing vocals and rock arrangements make for a fun listen. Poetic lyrics touch on everyday ruminations in tracks like “Celebrate the Mundane” and provide commentary on our digital age on “Green Screen” (with lyrics like “Computer are you listening? Thousands and millions of dollars. Lifeless animation. Longing for organic matter…”)
