J. GRAVES: Deathbed: EP

More killer songs from this Portland, Ore. trio. On Deathbed, J. Graves continues down the same path they established on their awesome debut LP Marathon: evocative instrumentation that draws from both moody post-punk like Siouxsie And The Banshees and the heavy thud of the mid-’90s Touch And Go roster. Throughout, singer/guitarist Jessa flutters and stabs with her vocals. J. Graves is a band that sounds way more established than their odometer might indicate. Excellent. –Michael T.
