Within seconds of pressing play on 2003's Blush Music we are transported from the comfort of our homes and into Woven Hand's Southern Gothic world.
Blush Music is technically Woven Hand's first album reworked for a Belgian avant-garde dance company and that's all right. Rearranged and given more room to breathe, the music seems more like a film score than a "rock" group album. Painting images of buzzards circling over the dead and rusted weathercock's amplified squeaks over a ghost town, Blush Music is creaky, haunting and so musically visual I find it soars past the original album.
