Blessure Grave

San Diego's Blessure Grave quickly follow up a tape on Night People with the Learn to Love the Rope 12" on Captured Tracks. Rounding up the dark and foreboding corners of new wave, the band don't exactly give off any sunny California vibes though the title should give a clear indication in that respect. Four originals and one pretty solid Shadow Ring cover that slip by almost too quickly. Dour but not sullen, the songs have a way of reveling in misery with out making the band seem on any sort of self-pity trip. This one chocks up yet another great release for the burgeoning Captured Tracks imprint, and aside from The Beets 12" (sorry kids I tried but just can't do it, live or on record), I'm digging pretty much the whole collection. Vive la tiny Brooklyn labels!

what do you mean you can't do The Beets!?!? They're one of my favorite bands on that label. don't count them out, just ignore it for a while and try them again later and see if anything changes.

I recommend NOT supporting this band. This dude is responsible for the Down in the Ground records fiasco, and has pocketed money from hundreds of pre-orders that will never see the light of day. BOOOOOO

Actually from my experience and what I've read online people have been getting their records left and right so the "never see the light of day" thing is an exageration.
