Album Review: Gravesend — “Methods of Human Disposal”

What do you think of when you think of New York City?  Perhaps it’s fashion, architecture, high culture, some of that Vile Luxury people are always talking about these days.  Perhaps it’s adorable, pizza-loving sewer creatures, both furry and smooth skinned, just trying to make it in the world.  Well, put any thoughts of a happy and bright city out of your mind, at least for the next twenty-something minutes.  Gravesend are back with their anticipated debut full-length Methods of Human Disposal, and they aim to paint a picture of a very different New York City than you might imagine.
