2008's 'Ten Stones' was my introduction to Woven Hand, as well as David Eugene Edwards all together. What can i say, it was long overdue cause these guys really do kick ass. For those who aren't familiar with him/them, you will find here ten untamed and mercy-drenched songs. From jarring folk to eerie bossa nova to fiery foot-stompers, the album forms a song-cycle that's singular in its breadth and eclecticism. The music of Wovenhand is utterly unique, dizzying those who encounter it, with turnings and lashings of shadow and light.
As for locking Woven Hand down to one single genre, it just can't be done. These guys have a very unique spin on all things folk, rock, experimental, dare i say Medieval Alt. Country haha. One of my favourites of the year that was. Looking forward to further exploring Edwards' previous work with 16 Horsepower.
Feel free to stop by and check out some of the goodies that have passed through my ears throughout the last few years. Delve into the archive and find something from every which era/genre. I more or less post psych/prog/folk/fusion stuff, although i do like to mix things up from time to time. Please leave a request or a general message in my chatbox, i always enjoy reading your feedback.
I'd also like to add that i think we should all be supporting these artists and the amazing work they do by buying the actual records or going to shows etc. So consider this a preview, if you enjoy what you find here, go buy it. Oh, and if anyone at any time wants me to take an album/link down from this page just shoot me an email or leave a comment in the desired post.
