“Stranger in the House” (MP3 – Download)

    Blessure Grave hails from San Diego but sounds as if they’d like nothing to do with the West Coast. “Stranger in the House” is a concise bit of goth-inspired rock that marches along in a stately fashion under the refrain “We’re not the same.” The song seems to threaten to kick into another gear but ultimately retains its militant groove, T. Grave’s throaty vocals and tight guitarwork. “Stranger” is definitely for those that need some catharsis for a bad mood. [Stereogum]
