WOVEN HAND / The Threshingfloor [2010]

Woven Hand has come to be known to use Old Testament Christianity as a way to invoke fear, wonder and self-doubt and on 2010's The Threshingfloor, Dave Edwards and the boys dig deeper and explore old Indian, Celtic and Middle Eastern folk as a tool of dread.
This is WH at some of their most hypnotizing and compelling yet, captivating the listener with a vast array of ethnic instruments used in such an organic way you might not even notice them at first.
