Gravenhurst - The Western Lands (V0)

Gravenhurst is Mark Talbot, a multi-instrumentalist singer and songwriter. He plays mostly downtempo acoustic folk, similar to a stripped-down Carissa's Wierd or Red House Painters. Talbot's music is relaxing, gentle and somber, equal parts saddening and nostalgic. The Western Lands is his most recent album, released in 2007 in complete obscurity. Although he is still fairly unknown, Gravenhurst has captured the hearts of many Warp Records fans with his gloomy and tenebrous ballads.
