4.0 out of 5 stars Ten Commandments, 15 Jan. 2009

This review is from: Ten Stones (Audio CD)
This is not a catchy record, rather an infectious one. These Ten Stones seem more like more like Ten Commandments. The ten tracks are primal, part-folk, part-righteous sermon (for he is a religious fellow), delivered from a seeming alter made of rock. There are also heavy alt. country influences, and the shuffling percussion of "Cohawkin Road" recalls those alt. country stalwarts Calexico. Folky features arrive in the form of the banjo, and the accordion, which appears in "White Knuckle Grip", the spoken-shout vocals in which recall Nick Cave, circa the "Abattoir Blues" half of Abattoir Blues/the Lyre of Orpheus: Limited Edition.

The record is actually an inventive indie rock one, and in being so shames most of that turgid scene. The wide-eyed, fanatic delivery is quite unnerving in parts and peaks in "Kingdom Of Ice" where Edwards (formally of 16 Horsepower) yells forth the "Flames of Akira and his kingdom of ice!" to disturbing effect. The final track reminds me that there is not one duff track on the album, rather just two or three respites in the sound of quieter, but no less intense tracks. The rest bubble and brood like the early "Horsetail".

A near indispensable album, creative and exciting - I for one am willing to convert to his church.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Woven Stones !!, 9 Sept. 2008

This review is from: Ten Stones (Audio CD)
I got this Woven Hands 4th album today and I've played it twice in the car. It is realy quite heavy in a good way and has a much fuller sound that the previous 3 albums. It has nine absolutely brilliant songs on it, I could not begin to describe how much I love them allready, this is the best WH record so far by far, which considering the absolute greatness of all WH previous output is saying something. there is also one cover of a realy awful song (in my opinion) maybe I'll get it later but it seems realy out of place to me now.
I absolutely love Woven Hand this music is compleatly unique and in a field and a class of it's own, if there is anyone else producing music as great and as moving and meaningfull as this I'd love to hear them
