Default Gravenhurst - Flashlight Seasons (2003)

I did a search and I was surprised I din't find any post about this **absolutely beautiful** album... a must for grey, rainy, mellancollic days...

The lyrics are amazing, and the music is delicate and full of nuances... it got me hooked for weeks of non-stop listening.

I listen mostly to other types of music so I can't give you good references but a safe comparisson is Marissa Nadler (I think).


Gravenhurst - Tunnels
My memories keep me feverish and sane
That night alive with stars and signs i can't explain
I recall an autumn fire,
A burnt out car
The shutdown cinema
Do you?
It's never the same this way
The world versus itself
It's them and us,
There's no-one else
Shoot a glance across the room
Lightning strikes,
No-one moves
Tunnels we dig into our tired souls
Rip up the foundations expose all the holes
Tearing away at the tense and frayed supports
I understand anger,
I know what it's for


Get it and tell me what you think

Old bump I know but I've been explorer this band recently. Fantastic stuff!

Does anybody know how Talbot died? Was it suicide?

The cause of his death was undisclosed. However he did have epilepsy.

I've been playing their album Fires in Distant Buildings regularly over the past few months and I really enjoy the hell out of it. It's good slow-burning music for the winter months.
