Weird Ear Records Really nice blend of blues, tape decay/distortion, and drone that all sits together in a thoroughly chewable morsel. Favorite track: Chrysalis Face.

Old Stones New building Old earth New soil its the time of year when we emerge its the time of year when we emerge Ill come back to see you when you least expect it Old stones new building I dont have any regrets I dont have any regrets Couldn't take any thing from me Dont have more to give But they still, they still got me where I live All your grandchildren Will ask you Where you came from You point a finger out toward the desert And all the fine hanging chandeliers

J.GRÄF/ The Future is a Faded Song

Released on Juneau Palace (first release of J.Gräf’s own label)
300 editions, 2013
J. Gräf’s first solo LP (with exception of The Guitars Project LP, and first solo CD Os), The Future is a Faded Song, contains compositions that blend improvisation and song structure to explore the grey area between order and chaos, between listening and being subsumed by sound. J. Gräf makes melody behave like a Loch Ness monster, surfacing and resurfacing in unsuspected moments, rearranging it temporally to bring forth the uncanny in the familiar. Through a matrix of sonic shifts, The Future is a Faded Song, ranges from the very lyrical vocals in such as in Old Stones to the throbbing chaos in Vertigo Mine.

J. Graf is known for her (now out of print) The Guitars Project, a collaborative sound experiment with a group of women with Alzheimer’s, for her 15 year collaboration with MV Carbon in Metalux as well in the band Bride of No No.

Credits include Kathleen Baird of Spires that in the Sunset Rise, Dan Breen of Lepracaun Catering and other local Baltimore musicians.
