To Sur w/ Love [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
On his third album, Graves singer/songwriter Greg Olin totally reinvents himself. Where the previous albums had been largely solo bedroom pop albums, there is an expansiveness to To Sur w/ Love. That's Sur as in Big Sur, the almost mythical California beach town, and the album is filled with gentle evocations of '60s sunshine pop and '70s California singer/songwriter rock all over the album.

A huge leap forward from the Graves' earlier albums, To Sur w/ Love is one of 2005's most underappreciated indie gems.
