Gravenhurst, The Velvet Cell

Single out 26 Sep 05, Warp Records

These two tracks are from the forthcoming album Fires in Distant Buildings due out on 24 October. I, for one, can't wait. Nick Talbot, joined here, by drummer David Collingwood, has been a genre traveller and here we visit experimental rock with influences suggested in the promo material of My Bloody Valentine and the Velvet Underground amongst others. These may well be true but both of those suggest an anarchism that doesn't actually dwell on these two tracks at least. But the sounds and ideas are there and it is nice. (Dr Boots)
