Boomkat Product Review:
A promising, scatterbrained debut full-length from intriguing lo-fi band A Grave With No Name, whose DIY experiments could happily brush sleeves with Deerhunter or Animal Collective in your record collection. Undoubtedly the 4/4 thump, field recordings and echoing harmonies of 'Sofia' are suggestive of a chill-wave take on something from the recent AC catalogue and the blurry nu-gaze of something like 'Ghosts And Stones' is suggestive of something from Bradford Cox's oeuvre. Not entirely dissimilarly the awesome 'Silver' gives The Big Pink a run for their money in the epic fizz-pop stakes, but A Grave With No Name rise above such similarities by offering a good deal more to boot; you'll hear them freewheeling through homespun experiments like 'Zachary', or winningly noisy melodies on 'Open Water' or 'Horses' showing enough different sides to their sound to hold your interest throughout. 'Underpass' seems especially from out of leftfield - it's a wonderfully sloppy piano ballad, and if it wasn't quite so sloppy it probably wouldn't work nearly so well. In an odd sort of way the vocal tuning issues make the track, preventing it from brushing too closely with schmaltz. Mountain Debris not only offers new tracks, it also collects the bands releases to date, including a split 7" with Natural Numbers and their eponymous EP. Recommended.
