Homespun: Grace Basement, Gunmetal Gray + CD Release Show Tonight!

In this week's paper, Christian Schaeffer reviews Grace Basement's new album, Gunmetal Gray. He had this to say:

Gray's easygoing pop swings in two directions. Certain songs are saddled with -- but not bogged down by -- a sense of resigned melancholy (the addiction lament/lullaby "Back of the Moon"). Others -- such as the infectious opening track "There He Goes" -- ramp up the group's perky, punchy, pop dynamics. On that sunnier tip, "On Your Side (Soldier's Song)" begins like a Sonic Youth jam and morphs into a horn-aided rocker reminiscent of Being There -era Wilco. Even slower songs such as "Why Would I Wait for Another?" and the stunning album-closer "Land of Endless Change" turn Buckley's blues into something grand and majestic, thanks to their precisely arranged instrumental codas. 

Read the rest here. Grace Basement's CD release show is tonight at Off Broadway; Everyday Visuals and Old Lights open. Snag an MP3 below!
