Gravenhurst - Black Holes in the Sand
Gravenhurst, purveyors of twisted folk, fast follow up Flashlight Seasons and their (excellent) entry on Dead Man Shoes OST with Black Holes in the Sand. This mini album wavers effectively between picked guitar, eerie atmospherics and vague, troubling lyrics. Something of an epic at over seven minutes, the title song can in fact be divided in half, the second going instrumental to introduce psychedelic touches and flourishes of organ. A cover of Husker Du's Diane, a song alluding to rape and murder, is more direct, and rather striking for being sung in Nick Talbot's soft tones.
