8/10 according to on Thu 27 May, 2010

I think this is the first I've heard of Wovenhand although I've got a vague recollection of coming into contact with some 16 Horsepower stuff at some point in the dim and distant past and apparently this is the guy who used to be their singer. So there you go. All sorts of influences seem to be at work in the presentation of his intriguing American gothic style, from neo-folk to alt. country to folk rock to classic folky psychedelic rock.. Although it seems a misleading comparison in a lot of ways I'm a little reminded of the way Matt Elliott blends all sorts of interesting ideas, both old and new, in the creation of something which sounds quite uniquely out of time. The promo of this got chucked on the stereo a few weeks back and it didn't do a huge amount for me but sitting down and listening to it properly I've got to say that I'm pretty keen on it. This is undoubtedly a very strong album and I'll be investigating this guy's stuff a bit further the first chance I get.

Press release

Wovenhand continues to be one of the most unique and exquisitely intense bands, both in live performance as well as recorded material. Free of any boundaries and crossing into new territories, David Eugene Edwards delivers "The Threshingfloor" Wovenhands' 6th album and masterpiece, in whichhe unleashes a maelstrom of fierce conviction that is as captivating as it is deeply spiritual.First off, there is David Eugene Edwards´ unmistakably enigmatic voice; pervasive and persuasive, tortured yet tender. The music, diverse in style, instrumentation and delivery, is never easy to corner, and though many have tried, no simple tag can be applied to this artist and his music. Each person must experience it for themselves and come to their own conclusion... For this album, Wovenhand has returned to work with producer/engineer Robert Ferbrache, a one-time lap-steel player in Sixteen Horsepower who runs Absinthe Studios in Colorado, USA. Coinciding with the albums release, Wovenhand will be touring Europe for a first stint in May/June, to be followed by select appearances on the European Summer Festivals circuit.
