Songs of the Day - December 11, 2006

Imagine Jim Morrison fronting Joy Division being transplanted to the moss covered swamps of the American South with a side trip to the Appalachians, and you will have a vague idea of Woven Hand's sound. Woven Hand is the solo project of David Eugene Edwards, frontman of 16 Horsepower; and his latest release Mosaic is a sublime work of dark American roots music. The album is full of eerie dark tunes that seem perfect for a winter storm, which just happens to be occurring as I write this post. One of the most ominous tunes is "Elktooth," which also is the name of the town where the CD was recorded. The organ intro and Edwards' vocals are a chilling combination that has a haunting beauty like a Rocky Mountain snowfall. Click here to listen.
