.Grantura's debut album 'In Dreams & Other Stories' is out now and available from: .... Picadilly Records (..Order..).. .. Rough Trade (..Order..) .. HMV.com (..Order..) .. Zavvi (..Order..) .. .. iTunes (..Download..) .. .. ...... .. ..Featuring singles 'Waves', 'In Dreams' and 'Down From The Mountain'... .. .. We're pleased to say we've had some lovely reviews starting to come in: .. .. ..The Times 26th September 2008.. ..****.. You suspect that Grantura are a band who started writing songs when they couldn't agree which Crosby Stills & Nash songs to cover. With the wind in their sails, though, the South London six-piece can whip up an acoustic strum and drang that just as happily calls to mind the Lilac Time ..(In Dreams, Waves).., Gram Parsons (..Holly..) and the La's (..Lazarus.. - La's R Us, geddit?). What it all adds up to on ..In Dreams & Other Stories.. is a roasty, toasty quilty pleasure of an album... (Pete Paphides) .. .. ..UNCUT Oct 08 .. *** .. Heady Vibes from London Six-piece.. .. West Coast rock has spawned many imitators in recent years, but few as convincing as Grantura. This euphoric debut aligns the ‘60s harmonies of The Byrds and The Mamas & The Papas to propulsive acoustic rhythms that often leak into country. Like The Cosmic Rough Riders before them though, it is a curiously British take on LA rock. Softened by pastoral delights like “Land of the Big Skies”, they recast Nick Drake’s “Cello Song” as a psych roustabout. Even odd excursions into weird polka (“House of Cards”) are delivered with style, wit and rare warmth. .. (Rob Hughes) .. .. Q Oct 08 .. *** .. ..London made country rock that works.. .. Specialising in harmony-laden Americana, with ‘60s West Coast echoes of CSN and The Byrds, Grantura don’t make a sound often associated with today’s Britain. It therefore says plenty that their debut is good enough to fool anybody. As well as the airy, sun-dappled vocals, they’ve got strong tunes such as In Dreams and the rippling Waves. When they push themselves a little harder, shading into psychedelia on Land of the Big Skies, they convince as a band genuinely made for wide open spaces, not simply six individuals aping the past. .. (Peter Kane) .. .. ..And here is what the Independent On Sunday had to say about the album..... .. .. .."As if to prove that Lucky Soul's debut album was no fluke, the charmingly independent Ruffa Lane Records now invites us to put pop prejudice to one side and welcome a self-proclaimed Americana group from the Atlantic. And guess what? This comes as close to the sound of the Californian cosmic cowboys as any group from "south-east London via the lowlands of Lincolnshire" has any right to get. There are echoes of The Byrds, The Dillards, the Clarks and The Burritos, but the best thing of all is that the whole thing manages to smell as much of real ale and cider as it does whisky sours.".. .. .. Simmy Richman for The Independent On Sunday .. .. .......... .. .. .. .... .. .. ..'Down From the Mountain' video 2008.. .. made by ..Paranoid Android Films.. .. .. .. “..Red hot hit!..” - Richard Allinson, on Chris Evans Drive time, BBC Radio 2 .. .. Thank you to Radio 2 listeners for voting for Down from the Mountain .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..Fill out your e-mail address..to receive our newsletter!.. .. .. ...... ...... .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ....What people are saying:.... .. .."Borderline, London, 12th Feb 08: Grantura sound new-minted, as if from the fresh first years of classic American bands like the country side of The Byrds, The Band and such – you can almost smell the grass and the sunshine in the February gloom of London (can’t wait to see them again in a summer festival field). Simple songs classically, cleverly put together, then played utterly from the heart – beautiful harmonies and gentle waves washing over – Waves itself (the recent single) is a highlight. Think of that glorious Coen Brothers film O Brother Where Art Thou? and the Soggy Bottom Boys endearing themselves to all who hear... That mandolin sounds just fine, that laid-back stripped down rhythm giving space for the guitars to arrive for their perfect moments. And there is a hint of an English heart in there that gives them something just a little different – Anglo-Americana then... The varied audience is completely won over, and there's a revelation: this kind of music was made precisely for little venues and imperfect PAs, and it's way more powerful than, say, raging metal. Hey look, they’re from London, their fine debut single came out late last year, they’re even more enjoyable live - fine fine easy, clever, crafted, highly enjoyable alt.Americana with that little something extra – momentum temporary halted by awkward equipment problems can’t hold back their magic, all is forgiven the second they pick up the music again – fine fine band, pure enjoyment, simple as that."..- ..Organ Zine.. Live Review .. .. .."Looking like the Style Council, they sound like The Byrds circa Sweetheart Of The Rodeo or the more rueful musings of Tenage Fanclub. A solid foundation of accoustic guitars and mandolin, monstrous tunes and delirious vocal harmonies.".. -Andrew Mueller (Music Week) .. .. .."That really is a beautiful song".. -Mark Radcliffe: BBC Radio 2.... ..“Quite simply absolutely beautiful” ..-Gary Crowley: BBC Radio London..... .."Take a listen to this, it's gorgeous".. -Janice Long: BBC Radio2.... .."A really lovely tune".. -Stuart Marconie: BBC Radio 2.... .."This is gorgeous".. -Shaun Keaveney: BBC 6 music.... .."Lush warm and very mellow, very inviting...authentic Americana done so so well... warm harmonies, faithful crafted sound, they clearly have a passion - everything is just right".... -Organ Magazine (online)..... .."Killer harmonies and duelling guitars".... -The Social W1 (March 2007 winners of 2007 Ti
