WOVEN HAND / Purr [2006]

In an attempt to recreate the artistic success of 2003's Blush Music, Woven Hand returns to rearranging older songs for the avant-garde dance group, Ultima Vez.
While Blush created a creaky, haunting atmosphere, 2006's Puur is full of the creepy but fails to make much of a lasting impact.  It meanders around with withering feedback and crackling drones which quickly wears out it's welcome.  One might think WH knew it wasn't up to par and that's why it's only available out of Germany and for a HEFTY price.
