Reviews of 'Mourning Dove':
“Faultless, soulful, acoustic stars”. (Bull & Gate).
"One of London’s most hard working folk singers is easily Menhirs Of Er Grah’s Tom Carter. And his spiritually solid release Mourning Dove is another fantastic addition to his already impressive body of work through various monikers. But, when Tom hopes to reach back to the basics of folk melodies, it is always back to the good ole Grah".
"Joining the ranks of acts like Naama Hillman, Robin Grey, or Madeline Hart, Menhirs Of Er Grah showcases the fascinating and elusive underworld scene in the city across the pond. You get pop minimalist tracks (”Whitening Light”), experimental propaganda (”Continental Drift”), and cleverly adapted stories of the earth (the other three tracks) on Mourning Dove. At times the E.P. is haunting, but is always soothing".
"If you are looking for hot coffee in the morning through music, let the rain pour down upon you and the beans brew for a half an hour with Tom Carter. This album could surely act as the muse to a better day, maybe even a better existence. Menhirs Of Er Grah is exactly the sort of musician’s artist the world has been awaiting. The Hunter S. Thompson of the music world some might say. To know music, to love it, to make good on promises to thy own self as far as artistic credibility is a huge concern. This is a presumption one could use to describe Carter’s way of life and work. And so far, he’s doing pretty good".
