Steve Von Till's third solo outing maintains his allegiance to Folk traditions, but a Grave Is a Grim Horse is a much more personal and confident effort. The Neurosis singer/guitarist intertwines interpretations of songs by Nick Drake, Townes Van Zant, Mickey Newberry, and Lyle Lovett with his own powerful yet subtle, graceful originals, which stand on par with these time-honored songwriters. On songs like the title track and 'Looking for Dry Land,' Von Till comes into his own as a composer and arranger, perfectly adorning infectious songs with flourishes of swooping strings, pedal steel, organ, et al. Where his previous releases showed reverence for the past, a Grave Is a Grim Horse peers directly forward, envisioning a path where others see fields. 2008.
