A couple weeks back, you may recall, Eric Grubbs caught up with local "stonegaze" trio True Widow to talk shop and to talk a long, hard look at the band's sophomore album, the obnoxiously titled As High As the Highest Heavens and From the Center to the Circumference of the Earth, the band's first for Kemado Record.

As we've long been telling you here on DC9, the disc is pretty phenomenal -- well worth the hype, we think.

And now we can finally back that claim up, thanks to the folks at National Public Radio, who, starting today and running on through the album's official release next Tuesday, are streaming the new disc in full.

Give it a listen. Really. If not because we say so, then because NPR calls it, music for a self-induced coma," which is a fairly accurate description.

Then catch the band performing at their album release show on Saturday night at the Double Wide. Or, if you want, head to the Double Wide tomorrow night, when the band will be doing the DJ thing at the venue, and maybe even sharing a few added treats you won't find on the album. Or so we hear.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
