- Day Breaks The Morning Shapes We Speak by Woodworkings
1 review. Write a review for us »
Aaaaaaahhhhhh. Everythings ok right? Woodworkings is the alter ego of Kyle Woodworth who produces a gentle take on neoclassical and ambient music using pianos, carefully plucked guitars and strings to soothe the ear of even the most stressed out listener. ‘A Candy Coated October’ is the perfect exemplification of this style.
It has the gentle feel of softly running water in a brook in the middle of a beautiful place somewhere in the countryside. Beginning with gently rolling acoustic guitars picking out a simple refrain, piano and slide guitars appear to drift into the track. Although acoustic and neo classical in style, the track builds in a similar way to those most heartwarming Mogwai instrumentals, gradually expanding and swelling yet never breaking into any kind of crescendo.
Other tracks utilise a combination of cello, piano and burbling atmospherics to create mood pieces of natural beauty, at times coming across as Rachels through a Tim Hecker filter, there are however dronier pieces but they are still easy on the ear. ‘Rust Flakes and Thinks Snow’ is a twinkling Sigur Ros like piece, with all the requisite sky reaching drones. Closer ‘Slept The Whole Way Home’ places cello of some warm beds of soft electronic flutterings. The album is resolutely pleasant, peaceful and a perfect diversion away from the stresses and strains of modern existence.
