As Mother Nature draws the curtain on another passing year and blows the icy chill of winter through our veins what better way to salute the rise of darkness than a cosy night spent dreaming in Glass Graves?

Yes Oakland’s Glass Graves – the nom du guerre of the fiendishly monikered Gaby Graves – are hoping to blacken the blue skies of our youth by offering their macabre n’ marvellous debut LP Architecture for free. Whilst the headstone may whisper ‘witch-house’, it sleeps more soundly near those plots filled by late ‘80s / early ‘90s crack’d n’ curs’d romantics like Curve, Nick Cave, My Bloody Valentine, Cranes and The Cure. Glorious midnight pop with a weeping, bleeding heart. Oh and rats, bloodbaths, shadows, prisons and cemeteries. Dellamore! Dellamorte! Something wicked this way comes! Now dig for victory comrades!

Elf Power has announced a European tour this winter to support their new album of the same name. The album is a tribute to longtime friend and mentor Vic Chesnutt who took his own life in late 2009. Elf Power and Chesnutt collaborated on an album, Dark Developments in 2008 and toured extensively with him through the years. The friendship that was forged through these partnerships and their loss is firmly felt on Elf Power

Supporting Elf Power across Europe is Madeline Adams, a singer songwriter from Athens, Georgia. Adams, who has been writing her own music since she was 15, has made a name through her poignant lyrics, haunting voice, and unique song writing. She recently released her third full length album, White Flag.

The Choir’s Burning Like the Midnight Sun was released to positive reviews in June, ending a five-year recording break that followed 2005’s O How the Mighty Have Fallen. Rather than have listeners wait another several years for more material, the band closes out 2010 with de-plumed, a collection of re-recorded, acoustic renditions of songs from past albums. Band members Derri Daugherty and Steve Hindalong are touring in support of the new albums, and their set list includes de-plumed‘s introspective variations as well as the stories behind the songs.

The film will study the writer’s widespread cultural influence; it will feature rare interviews with the writer’s friends, associates, and admirers; and it will unveil previously unseen shots of the writer.
