First Agalloch, and now Grayceon!? Profound Lore, undoubtedly a label I've known for releasing a lot of tunes I'm not a fan of, may be working towards regaining my trust after all. You may remember these guys from previous audio or video podcasts I've done last year, but I know it's been a whole year so let me re-jog your memory. THEY FUCKING RULE! Remember now? No? Fine, I'll spell it out for you…
Grayceon is a three piece extremely diverse band from San Francisco led by classically trained Jackie Perez Gratz on Cello and Vox, Max Doyle on Guitar and Vox, and Zack Farwell on Drums. Together these three create some of the best unique slow jam musical compositions I've heard in the last few years. Their 2008 release entitled "The Grand Show" is an LP I couldn't get enough of even after 100 spins in a row, and if you've been paying attention to how I feel about some of these slow jam bands out there, then you know it has to be something really unique.
I'm definitely stoked to see where this band takes themselves in the next year, hopefully to the east coast!
