Hailing from Dallas, Texas, True Widow are the sole purveyors of ‘Stonegaze’ music, a sound somewhere between drone-like stoner and the quiet minimalism of traditional shoegaze style music.
Circumambulation means to walk around a scared object, and the title feels apt, as the music on show feels like it could be the soundtrack to chanting monks circling a holy relic. The music’s slow, thick on reverb and distortion, but feaures some haunting, eerie vocals. Well worth a listen for those who like slow-burning atmospherics and hazy soundscapes.
