"Multi-instrumentalist songwriter Nick Talbot exhibits a shark-like inability to stay still. Over the course of four albums the Gravenhurst moniker has charted the waters from bedroom melancholy, through acid-folk murder balladry and now, sprawling experimental rock music, suggesting influences as diverse as My Bloody Valentine, Slint, Richard Thompson and the Velvet Underground. Complex, filmic arrangements ('Down River') keep company with literate, romantic songwriting ('Nicole') and hypnotic, kraut-rock workouts ('The Velvet Cell'). The whole 50-odd minutes is suffused with competing themes of violence and deliverance, paranoia and epiphany, squalor and ascendance, peaking with the horrifying 'Animals.'"
