WOVEN HAND / Woven Hand 
In between 16 Horsepower albums, David Eugene Edwards takes a solo ride on his new project entitled Woven Hand.
Brooding over a sound palate leaning towards a Gothic Bluegrass sound that's teetering on the brink of neo-folk, Edwards sounds right at home here. If not for the twangy sounds of mandolins, brush drums and banjos, one might actually swear it was Nick Cave washing his menace all over this haunting and hypnotizing project.
It's the type of music that's meant to played loudly over the mountaintops as the sun goes down on a dead winter's night. Simply a wonderful delight for this weary traveler.
