    Taking equal parts inspiration from British folk and shoegaze pop, Gravenhurst is the vehicle of vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Nick Talbot. The band's fifth full-length, WESTERN LANDS, takes a giant leap forward in terms of production, throwing every small sonic detail into a bold panoramic relief. Talbot's somber guitar tones twang evocatively, like dusky spaghetti-western soundtracks, lending the album a sense of sinister beauty. Other tracks take the hard-charging approach of bands like My Bloody Valentine, framing Talbot's spectral vocals within layers of blistering, droning guitar bliss.
