Grails – Dargai

Ready for a slow funereal waltz? Grails have taken the longest time to settle in my mind, I knew I liked them (much like Low in fact) but I couldn’t quite work out why. But those frequent late night visits finally paid dividends and I am now quite satisfied to bathe in their slow progressions. ‘Dargai’ comes from as far back as 2004’s ‘Red Light’ but kind of hit the bullseye straight away. The pace, as ever, is slow, like the Velvet Underground at 13rpm (or Ry Cooder at 78rpm) but you can just imagine how the pieces fell together in the neatest of ways. It takes a lot of talent to sound this languid and it wouldn’t mean a whole lot if the crawl wasn’t so flecked with majestic artistry. Grails have a newbie on the way next month, it’s called ‘Doomsdayer’s Holiday’ so don’t be expecting the gorgeous melancholy to end any time soon. Long may it prosper I say. KD
