WOVEN HAND / Mosaic [2006]

With 16 Horsepower six feet under, David Eugene Edwards could finally give his all to the Woven Hand project.  2006's Mosaic showcases that effort and dedication.  
Mostly stepping away from the folk country roots and leaning towards an Eastern European flavor, Edwards seems to be channeling Peter Gabriel's Passion score.  His music conjures up images of the apocalypse while his lyrics and voice are so intense I'll bet he could drive me into the corner crying like a little bitch with his insane spiritual death ramblings and threats.
