Gravenhurst Black Holes In The Sand Limited Reissue Vinyl LP + Download

· Tenth anniversary re-press of Gravenhurst’s 2004 minialbum, the companion piece to their first album on Warp,
‘Flashlight Seasons’.
· A mini-album half an hour in length and comprised of six
songs, Nick Talbot aka Gravenhurst regarded it as a set of
clues to the sound of future Gravenhurst records. A noisier
and more overtly lo-fi record of dark pastoral psychedelia,
‘Black Holes In The Sand’ firmly established an enduring
Gravenhurst aesthetic: enigmatic lyrics, ghostly vocals and
virtuoso finger-picked guitars against a backdrop of
cinematic, shape-shifting, semi-conscious textures;
subliminal transmissions from the surrounding landscape. For the last decade the title track has frequently featured as the show closer, with its sprawling second half ending the performance amidst a wall of quaking feedback, electronic pulsations and pounding ceremonial drums; a sonic evocation of the forces of nature.
· “The title track is an exquisite lament that swells over
seven minutes into electric turbulence” - Uncut
· “Breathtaking in all senses” - Q
· Includes a download card and new sleevenotes from Nick
· This is being reissued alongside a re-press of ‘Flashlight
Seasons’ and a collection of unreleased recordings from the period ‘Offerings: Lost Songs 2000 – 2004’.
