Blessure Grave are a guy-and-girl duo from San Diego who make some wonderfully haunting music. This was another favorite of 2009 for me. The male and female vocals work great together, the guitars are perfectly dissonant in parts and then quite melodic in others, check the almost synthesizer like guitar on "Stop Breathing". This EP also features a cover of "City Lights" by the experimental folk band The Shadow Ring. This is "goth" the way it should be. If you like your post-punk a little on the darker side, then this would be a fine addition to your collection. Incidentally, the label this record was released on (Captured Tracks) is a veritable gold mine of great music and is also worth a look.
