A Grave with No Name is the work of UK artist Alexander Shields This track is the first single from his debut album and features the sublime Ides on vocals. This is so great, I recon she should just join the band?
The album ‘Whirlpool’ will be released on Stare Records on July 1st.
I love how understated this is. It reminds me of the home-recorded Bill Callahan stuff. You listen to it and you think, how can something so beautiful be recorded so simply in someones bedroom. But maybe that’s the beauty of it, the intimacy, the intrusion into privacy.
Ides is Alana McArdle and I think the best track is 16 but you can check out lots of her songs on her Soundcloud page.
