MP3: Your Injured Ways

Chances are you’ve seen the Grave Blankets in one form or another over the last two years. Seems like they’ve played a variety of bills in every venue in town, laying under the radar despite releasing two excellent singles (technically one and a half) in 2007. Much like their peers in the Cheater Slicks, the husband-wife duo of Nick and Lula Perry (with a rotating cast of drummers) have found warmer receptions outside of Columbus, pulling together a few short tours and generating the interest of a handful of labels. With a national spotlight shining brightly on our capitol city, the GB’s may be Columbus’ best kept secret. Their constantly evolving sound has found them implementing keys and streamlining their songs into a fiery ball of brimstone rock. Look for 2008 to be a big year for them, as they hope to release another duo of singles and a debut full-length by the end of the year.

Grave Blankets are playing one of the two 5 Year Anniversary Shows. They’ll be at the Friday show at Carabar with Deathly Fighter, This Moment in Black History, and Sinkane. For more details, click here.
