WOVEN HAND / Black Of The Ink EP[2011]

10 years into their career Woven Hand (Dave Edwards to be exact) unleash their 2011 6 song EP entitled Black Of The Ink.  
What we have here are 6 songs each from one of their 6 albums, recorded with just Dave and his guitar, which serves as a compact overview of their 10 years as an act.  It doesn't sound like much but it works really, really well.  Edwards' music has always been, at the core, about the evils of the human soul, so it seems fitting it be recorded in such a powerfully intimate fashion.  
What sells the whole deal is it's packaged as a beautiful 110 page hardcover book featuring handwritten lyrics of every Woven Hand song to date coupled with some abstract drawings all by Dave Edwards.
