The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

Five years ago on May 13th, Victor Lovera left this planet for good after a long illness. He was an amazing songwriter, longtime compatriot of R.Stevie Moore, and a good friend to me. Here are a few audio memories I have.

Live performance by Greta Gertler and The Carpentier Quartet (Greta Gertler: voice/ Fender Rhodes, Cliff Schmidt: bass, Romulo Benevides: violin, Eddie Venegas: violin, Samuel Marchan: viola, David Gotay: cello)
 
Sydney, Australia native/Brooklyn transplant Greta Gertler describes her music as, “70's-style orchestral pop, but urges you not to picture flares and bad jumpsuits.” What you can picture are her brilliantly executed pop melodies sung in Greta's clear soprano. This performance is tastefully embellished by The Carpentier Quartet, a Latino chamber ensemble heavily influenced by Cuban writer Alejo Carpentier.

Live performance by Nick Talbot (aka Gravenhurst)
 
Delicate and melancholic, Nick Talbot's songs are grounded in the damage inflicted by love and loss. It's a pastoral folksy scene, strewn with rocks and sharpened sticks. Nick's acoustic is accompanied on his last song by Jeffrey Alexander of Black Forest/Black Sea, whose electronic embellishments are kin to the dark underbelly of psyche folk. Gravenhurst has two albums out, "Flashlight Seasons" and "Internal Travels," both available through Silent Age Records.
  -"Entertainment"
  -"Damage"
  -CD: "Tunnels" [Flashlight Seasons]
  -"Romance"
  -"Diane" (cover of a Husker Du song)
  -"Damage pt.III"
  -"The Diver" (w/Jeffrey Alexander of Black Forest, Black Sea)
