Listen: Grant Cutler & the Gorgeous Lords
If this first track is any indication, Cutler's EP could be an underdog contestant for one of the most beautiful releases of the year. "Our Love is a Mighty Fortress" starts out with the dark, delicate sadness of a Leonard Cohen ballad, then builds into a grandiose, choral cacophony. It's lush, chilling stuff, and it's a vivid testament to Cutler's developing talents.
But you don't have to take our word for it. Download the song here:
