A Grave with No Name

Influenced with the lo-fi ’90s indie aesthetic of Pavement and Sebadoh and from the past due-2000s shoegaze revival alongside Banjo or Freakout, Atlas Appear and Big Green, A Grave without Name may be the musical brainchild of London-based musician Alex Shields. Called after an in-joke that referenced metalcore/emo group As I Place Dying, Shields started the task in 2006 and documented fifty percent of his 2009 full-length debut Hill Debris within a cathedral in Stoke Newington, East London. Recruiting bassist Tom Ruler and guitarist Anupa Madawela to flesh out A Grave without Name’s woozy and ethereal pop, the album’s ensuing hazy, kaleidoscopic audio recalled My Bloody Valentine, Led by Voices, as well as the Microphones. A Grave without Name came back with 2011’s Decrease, an atmospheric record that spanned two cassettes. For 2013’s Whirlpool, the music group worked within an real recording studio room for the very first time and collaborated with Echo Lake’s Linda Jarvis, Comanechi’s Akiko Matsuura, and Ides’ Alanna McArdle. That season, A Grave without Name also released the Poltergeist record — which highlighted tape loops, present noises and drum devices — as a free of charge download. Shields and business caused Lambchop’s Tag Nevers at his Beech Home studio room in Nashville on 2015’s refined, twangy Feathers Moist, Beneath the Moon.
