Blissed Out on the road of Marfa, Texas.






























A Grave With No Name – Crows
A Grave With No Name – Sofia


‘Crows’ is a new demo from A Grave With No Name tagged as Grunge / Country / Ambient (duo) and the Influences are The Microphones, Subway…. at their own Myspace site,  ‘Sofia’ is taken from their last year’s first full length “Mountain Debris” via No Pain In Pop / Lefse.


Most of what London’s A Grave With No Name do enters the world through ‘The Church’, the bedroom studio of main man Alex Shields. Bassist Tom King and guitarist Anupa Madawela are called in when the time comes to add a more sturdy grunge backbone to whoozy dream-pop that recalls the stoned slackerisms of Animal Collective and Daniel Johnston, voices entwining with processed beats, white noise and lost melodies.  ( Lefse)

Echoing the history of voices that’ve run counter to the gospel of the music industrial complex (The Beatles, Brian Eno, XTC, etc.), Brad Laner makes records to be experienced as just that: records.


Hometapes has announced that Brad Laner‘s second full length “Natural Selections” is due out on August 24th, following up to his previous first solo album “Neighbor Singing” (Hometapes/2007) co-produced by Thom Monahan (Vetiver).


Steaming Coils. Savage Republic. Medicine. Electric Company. Amnesia. Lusk. The Internal Tulips. The house that Brad Laner built spans twenty-five years and as many LPs, paving the way for shoegaze in North America and sewing the seeds of electronica in the median of that same dusty highway. 


Brad Laner – Crawl Back In
From the forthcoming album “Natural Selections,” editing, animation and photography by Josh Laner.
