GRAVE118 WHIRR : SWAY

CD / LP / TAPE / DIGITAL (9/23/14)

 

c

When Sway begins, you might at first press pause, reaching for your headphone wire or peeking behind your speaker cables to make sure nothing has come undone. The blister of distorted guitar that opens the album comes only from the right channel, howling and hanging there in irascible isolation until it seems that something must be wrong.
But be patient: After a dozen seconds, the rest of Whirr—a five-piece of blanketing rock focus and comforting pop finesse—pours in from the left channel. They meet the guitar in the middle, together racing headlong into a short section that’s heavy as metal but pliable enough to be the springboard for the galloping shoegaze beauty that soon arrives... click here for more info on this release

GRAVE112 HALEY BONAR : LAST WAR

CD / LP / TAPE / DIGITAL (5/20/14)

 

c

Haley Bonar had already recorded an album as a teenager before leaving Rapid City, SD for Duluth, MN—where she immediately recorded again. Alan Sparhawk heard her at a local Iron Range club one night and a week later, she was transformed from a college student to an ambitious dropout with her guitar and a drummer crammed into a Honda Civic opening for Low. She was nineteen years old. That’s a story already. But—there is more to this story. In the last decade, Haley has released eight more recordings to critical acclaim and mounting success: lots of touring, playing festivals, capturing awards and artist grants, inventive video productions, placing song tracks on prime TV shows and popular film, appearing on myriad Best-Of lists while continuing to write and perform locally. Oh… and she also had a baby in there somewhere... click here for more info on this release

GRAVE107 THE CASKET GIRLS : TRUE LOVE KILLS THE FAIRY TALE

CD / LP / TAPE / DIGITAL (2/11/14)

 

c

So many pieces of Savannah, GA three-piece The Casket Girls seemed to happen by accident. From their beginning — when electronic sound-shaper Ryan Graveface (Graveface Records, Dreamend, Black Moth Super Rainbow) found sisters Phaedra and Elsa Greene under a tree in one of Savannah’s many squares, playing Autoharp and singing bizarre songs — to the night they composed their sophomore album, True Love Kills the Fairy Tale, under circumstances that fall somewhere between séance and dream state, nearly everything about The Casket Girls seems to have been inspired by some kind of spooky happenstance. But then again, the Greene sisters don’t believe in accidents...... click here for more info on this release

LP / CD / Digital Download (released on 11/6/12)

 

cThe Casket Girls is a new three-piece band hailing from Savannah, GA. Comprised of Ryan Graveface (Black Moth Super Rainbow, The Marshmallow Ghosts, Dreamend) who wrote and played all the song structures, and newcomers, Elsa and Phaedra Greene, who wrote and performed all of the vocals. On Sleepwalking, the band’s first release, the unique collaboration bears to be more than the sum of its parts - as the girls’ haunting and upbeat pop sensibility imbues Ryan’s inspired instrumental musings with such a sense of purpose that you must wonder how one could exist without the other ... click here for more info on this release

c

A great dance party is a thing of beauty, but a good soundtrack for the comedown can be just as vital. After nearly a decade on the trippy dancefloor of Soundpool, guitarist/drummer/bassist/producer John Cep and singer/bassist Kim Field set off from that New York five-piece to take respite in the warm and woozy sounds of a new shoegaze-infused project, The Stargazer Lilies.

GRAVE92 WHIRR : AROUND

LP / CD / Cassette / Digital Download (out 7/9/13)

 

ffWhirr returns with Around, an EP that finds the group restrained, but no less dark. Here, they explore longer songs, with their shortest clocking in at just under six minutes. Catchy melodies, traditionally a part of the band’s wheelhouse, give way here to a droning ambience, shifting Whirr slightly from their shoegaze core toward a dour post-rock sound. Vocalists Kristina Esfandiari and Loren Rivera keep their contributions misty and abstract, serving here as additional instruments more than messengers. But the thunderous drums and lavish guitar work remain — albeit in a colder, glassier form — making Around both a departure and a logical step forward from Whirr’s previous work...... click here for more info on this release

GRAVE101 V/A - WEARY ENGINE BLUES + WILLIAM SCHAFF SCREENPRINT

CD / Digital Download (released on 5/?/13)

 

From William Schaff:

v/a

"Back in January of this year, I received a message from a friend of Jason's, Tara Samaha. Like so many of us were, she was concerned. She was concerned for his safety, mental and physical health after receiving an alarming email. She felt he needed a map to help him through these troubled times and then asked that I make him one. I did. Sadly we were never able to land a concrete address for Jason, where we knew he would get the map. I know that he had lost things important to him over the past few years, for various reasons, so I wanted to be sure this got into his hands, and no one else. That said -- sadly -- the map was never delivered to him. 
Upon learning of his death, the map sat in my studio; it felt cold, and now useless. A guide made for a friend who can no longer see it. 
Ryan Graveface and I thought of how, thanks to folks like you, we were able to raise a considerable amount of money for Jason's medical bills through sales of the book, From Black Sheep Boys to Bill Collectors. We thought maybe there is still a way for this map to be useful. Not as it was originally intended, a map for one man, but as tool to commemorate this man, and continue to help his family, especially in such dark times as these. 100% of the profits from this print will be going to Jason Molina's family. We now have a chance to give back to the family that gave us Jason, who in turn gave us all so much.
Our love goes out to the Molina family, and to the family he built in his dusty road travels." 

 

From Aaron Molina:

"Very rarely do you run into a star that burns as brightly as Jason. When he is also your brother you are truly blessed. To fans of Jason’s music we want you to know you were the center of Jason’s universe, you meant everything to him. As much as his music inspired others, he was constantly and honestly inspired by you. From the Molina family, from the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank you for the outpouring of support and send our condolences to his fans and friends."

 

From me:

With the purchase of the 12.5x12.5 print of the above mentioned artwork, we're including a compact disc of Jason Molina covers. We're calling this collection Weary Engine Blues, named after a piece of artwork by Molina that serves as the cover of this CD release. Click here to view that artwork.

Huge thanks to Hugh Noble and William Schaff for helping get this together so quickly. Please note you cannot just buy the screenprint or the cd. They come as a package and are limited to 525 copies. Know that 100% of the profits are going directly (and immediately) to Jason Molina's incredible family.

GRAVE050 WILLIAM SCHAFF ART BOOK W/ JASON MOLINA 10"

LP+Book / Digital Download (released on 9/25/12)

 

molinaOn Sept 25th the world will be able to hear the first new music from lo-fi hero Jason Molina since 2009 (1st solo music since '06). The mini-album is called 'Autumn Bird Songs' & is an incredibly moving & powerful work. It was recorded soon before Molina took a leave from the industry a few years back. 'Autumn Bird Songs' consists of 8 songs that were specifically written and recorded to and for William Schaff's artwork in the hopes that one day our music-related art book would be finished. Well due to the overwhelming support on Kickstarter, that became a reality this year and we are very proud of the finished result. The book is 82 pages and begins with an introduction by John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats. On the artwork front, we take you from the old school mixtape covers Schaff would create when he was young to his work for such artists as Okkervil River, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Monster Movie, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Kid Dakota, Songs: Ohia and many more.

This is a product of love that we began in 2007 so we really hope you enjoy it. The retail version of the book comes with a rainbow center spray black 10" of 'Autumn Bird Songs' which is limited to 350 copies.

GRAVE035 THE APPLESEED CAST : Two Conversations the appleseed cast

LP (originally released on 10/20/09, repress out 2/12/13)

 

Two Conversations divided many listeners and critics upon its release. While some saw the album's more conventional song structures, less diverse sonic palette and relationship-driven lyrics as a blatant artistic retreat after the intense, experimental Low Level Owl project, others praised it as an assured combination of the driving emo-rock of their earlier work subtly embellished with elements of the Low Level Owl sound. click here for more info on this release

 

First pressing was 1000 copies on transparent monster electric green/baby blue opaque/red and white splatter vinyl w/ an 11x17 poster folded and tucked inside. Second pressing was on ultra clear vinyl with lots of black, white and highlighter yellow splatter. Third pressing was doublemint on kelly green splatter vinyl.

GRAVE062 THE MARSHMALLOW GHOSTS : S/T & CORPSE REVIVER NO. 2 FILM

DUALDISC / LP / Digital Download (released on 10/11/11)

 

MARSHMALLOW GHOSTSThe Marshmallow Ghosts' first full-length self-titled album truly is the most fitting Halloween soundtrack. It's spooky and it’s dark. Paradoxically, though, it’s light. It is a pop album after all – and a particularly catchy one at that. "Hearse Song" is a notable track with its melodic sing-along feel and dance beat; as is "Trick." Its peculiar arrangement and creepy ambiance make it an unlikely, but satisfying, pop song. Organs, fuzzy guitars and piano chords swirl about crafty lyrics. The Marshmallow Ghosts know how to set a tone. This album sounds, feels and virtually smells like Halloween. While listening, you can almost taste the peanut butter cups... click here for more info on this release & click here for a sampler of all the songs on the record.

GRAVE060 THE NIGHTY NITE : DIMPLES

CD / LP / Digital Download (released on 6/21/11)

 

nighty niteJohn Congleton and Jason Garner of The Paper Chase have teamed up with some good friends to form a new band called The Nighty Nite. Joining them are members of Wires Under Tension (Chris Tignor), Shearwater (Kevin Schneider), and the Hospital Ships (Jordan Geiger). The band's debut EP Dimples is set for release on June 21st via Graveface and sounds like the soundtrack to a tragic black comedy, as if Woody Allen made a horror movie about a punk rock band.
The four songs on The Nighty Nite's Dimples EP echo and marry John Cale's sardonic mix of pop/orchestra/skronk and the atmospheric doom of late-period Scott Walker. "Some people have told me it's the darkest thing I've ever done", says Congleton. "I don't know if I agree but so be it if so."

Congleton's lyrics on the EP are sharpened to an existential point, vacillating cleverly between tragedy and comedy, as in "Dimes In Their Dimples", when the band follows his line, "God, you gave them lips but they still speak of nothing less than the odious things, and all that portly cargo they're still shlepping," with a truly terrifying musical rise and crescendo in noise.... click here for more info on this release

GRAVE059 THE LOOSE SALUTE : GETTING OVER BEING UNDER

CD / LP / Digital Download (released on 6/7/11)

 

loose saluteFour years on from the critically acclaimed 'Tuned To Love', The Loose Salute are back with an album of splendid, rueful charm - a triumph of heart and soul. The music is still wearing it's bubblegum heart on its sleeve but it's bruised, tougher, wiser.
Opener 'It’s A Beautiful Thing' captures the band’s spirit in one song. A swoonful, melody-cut diamond that chases down that elusive dream, a hymn to battling through that manages to be both crestfallen and hope filled.  One side of 'Getting Over Being Under' is all about celebrating much loved influences, West Coast, Beach Boys, Nashville, they're all there, but they venture further afield and conjure authentic Delta Boogie in 'Sister Corita', an almost Bolan-esque stomp on 'Run Out Of Morning' and the folky Fairport shuffle of 'Perhaps She’ll Fly'.

GRAVE058 THE APPLESEED CAST : Middle States

CD / LP / Digital Download (released on 6/7/11)

 

appleseed castMiddle States seems an appropriate title for the band’s latest release. It could be read as signifying the band’s home town of Lawrence, Kansas (a “middle” state if there ever was one), the EP’s place in the trajectory of the band’s career, a piece that alludes to its progress between its gripping seventh album, Sagargatha (2009) and it’s already eagerly-anticipated eighth record (due out on Graveface in early 2012). Or, as the title track suggests, the middle stages and transitional periods of life. Heard through the lush, brightly textured harmonies led by singer and co-founder Chris Crisci, change is a pretty alright thing.
For the Middle States EP, The Appleseed Cast sequestered itself in its own recording “compound,” having fallen in love with the freedom of crafting records without the time and budget constraints of a traditional studio during home sessions for Sagarmatha. The relaxed pace and familiar setting has served the band well. Opening the EP is cinematic rocker “End Frigid Constellations,” a song that evokes so many feelings and imagery it seems epic despite its relative shortness. The finale, “Three Rivers,” contains many of the EPs most majestic moments and showcasing the band’s live prowess and tight musicianship. The song marks the band’s first completely improvised release, but with any luck it won’t be the last.
Middle States gives insight into a band that is constantly reinventing itself and growing stronger with each passing year. If the EP is a teaser of things yet to come, we can only say it’s working brilliantly.. click here for more info on this release

dreamend“And the Tears Washed Me, Wave After Cowardly Wave” is Part 2 to “So I Ate Myself, Bite By Bite,” which came out in August of 2010. Part 1 is the true story of a normal man’s unraveling psyche and his grisly misdeeds. Years ago, I bought one of the real life serial killer’s journals at an auction in the woods. I was so moved by his seeming mediocrity, that I had to write about him. Part 1 covers a fairly large span of time in his life - childhood to his thirties. Part 2 takes place after his initial taste for blood and accurately ends with his death.... click here for more info on this release

GRAVE056 HOSPITAL SHIPS : LONELY TWIN

CD / LP / Digital Download (released on 6/7/11)

 

hospital shipsIf Oh, Ramona was Jordan Geiger’s bedroom-pop debut album, then Lonely Twin is the sound of Geiger’s Hospital Ships solo project moving up to a three-room suite. Exploding outward on album opener “Love Or Death,” Geiger gives voice to those “...on the outside, always looking in,” while injecting enough electronic beats, buzzing organ riffs, and joyous handclaps to elevate this sophomore Hospital Ships album from modest humility to self-assured confidence.
Perhaps that’s because Geiger, a native of Lawrence, Kansas, former member of Shearwater and the Appleseed Cast, and principal member of the now-defunct Minus Story, has taken the fractured Midwestern influences of The Flaming Lips and Bright Eyes to fresh new heights. “Honey Please” is a rollicking slice of queasy, off-kilter rock, but tender tracks like “Bird In Furs” and “Phantom Limb” revisit Geiger’s bedroom strengths: intimate, majestic moments of indie-pop beauty that rise and fall with the crescendos and valleys of his high-pitched tenor.... click here for more info on this release & click here for a photo of the second pressing vinyl color.

GRAVE055 KID DAKOTA : LISTEN TO THE CROWS AS THEY TAKE FLIGHT

CD / LP / Digital Download (released on 10/11/11)

 

KID DAKOTAKid Dakota, aka Darren Jackson, has been writing killer indie rock songs for years. In a time where authenticity is just another mask songwriters don to achieve success in the marketplace, Jackson crafts lyrics and melodies that stand on the quality of their content, not on the cult of personality. This is not “the next big thing,” this is really good songwriting, from a man who knows what he is doing.

Recently, Jackson, a long time resident of Minnesota, moved back to the remote rural town in South Dakota where he grew up. Much of the album was recorded in Minneapolis before the move, but the spirit that took him back to his hometown infuses the deeply personal content of this collection... click here for more info on this release

The original album will be expanded by 14 songs that were recorded during the same time period as Dandelion Gum, 5 of which have never been heard before.

The CD contains the extra flavor tracks whereas the LP & Cassette come with a download code for the bonus tracks.

CD / Colored LP / Digital Download (released on 10/12/10)

 

Blue Water White Death is the brainchild of two of today’s most unique songwriters--Jamie Stewart of the eclectic, risk-taking pop group Xiu Xiu, and Jonathan Meiburg, golden-throated front man of Austin art-rock quintet, Shearwater. Longtime fans of each other’s music, for their first collaboration Stewart and Meiburg adopted the name of a 1971 documentary that follows a team of increasingly reckless explorers on a shark-finding quest to Australia’s aptly-named Dangerous Reef. As Blue Water White Death, the two conjure music that, like the underwater world of the ocean, is dually ominous and serene, and fittingly, considering the band’s namesake plunges boldly into new sonic territories. click here for more info on this release

Black Moth Super RainbowGRAVE045 BLACK MOTH SUPER RAINBOW : Eating Us

LP / CD / Digital Download (released on 4/6/10)

 

The first fully hi-fi BMSR record, Eating Us, adds space and dimension to the band's sticky, off-kilter melodies. This isn't an album about witches and woods, and this time around the band isn't letting on to what it all might mean. Because to them, it's just better that way. click here for more info on this release

the lava childrenGRAVE042 THE LAVA CHILDREN : S/T

CD /LP / Digital Download (released on 5/26/09)

 

With The Lava Children’s self-titled debut, the listener is immediately aware they’re hearing something completely uncommon. In fact, The Lava Children are something completely uncommon. As the music industry becomes ever more jaded and manufactured and music is treated like so much invaluable garbage to be traded and tossed about freely, it seems like hearing something that sounds totally new is becoming less and less of a regular occurrence. Here you’ll find no familiar “classic rock overtones.” There are no hackneyed “angular guitar tones”- in fact, you’re only occasionally reminded that you’re even hearing instruments. click here for more info on this release

No one could possibly mistake A Winners Shadow for an ABBA record -- "Transfusion," a catchy song about heroin addiction and psychic oblivion in Mexico, and the dealer-and-addict saga "Puffy Jackets" are two of the sunnier tunes to be found here -- but it at least acknowledges the possibility of happiness in songs like the nearly hopeful, energetic "Chutes and Ladders". click here for more info on this release

Black Moth Super RainbowGRAVE026 THE OCTOPUS PROJECT & BLACK MOTH SUPER RAINBOW :
The House of Apples and Eyeballs

CD / LP SOLD OUT/ Digital Download (released on 10/31/06)

The House of Apples & Eyeballs is not a split, but a year-long, full-length collaboration by both bands. While a couple tracks did make it to the record in their original, one-band form, most were passed back and forth for several rounds of dismemberment, rearrangement, and augmentation. The result overflows with sonic treats: cut-up beats and vocoder melodies collide with huge, distorted riffs. click here for more info on this release

monster movieGRAVE024 MONSTER MOVIE : All Lost

CD / Digital Download (released on 4/14/06)

All Lost is so satisfying not due to lack of composure, but to the fact that its sense of composure isn't uncompromising – that Savill and Co. don't reject clichés just because they're there. The durable and unexpectedly diverse songwriting is what makes the album a success, but the small triumph is in managing to make the durable and unexpectedly diverse songwriting all that matters. click here for more info on this release
