ORGAN THING: WOVENHAND’S SILVER SASH, A PROPER ALBUM, A RICH ALBUM THAT NEEDS HOLDING, STUDYING, ADMIRING. PROPER. 

Wovenhand – Silver Sash (Glitterhouse) – There’s a dark brooding drive to the latest Wovenhand album, maybe if Scott Walker had taken on a (not so obvious) brand of slightly alternative hard rock? There’s a warm way with words here, Silver Sash is a little more than the background music that most things ultimately are, this is a rich album, an album that makes demands of the listener, the words crave your attention as does the warm music – evocative lyrics painting the scene – “galloping across the dry grass fields on a horse into the white bark forest”.   This is a full bodied sound rather than a heavy one – dense, detailed – feel the thickness of that sound, admire the way they’ve cut their rich musical cloth. 

“Wovenhand is the musical project of enigmatic American singer-songwriter and guitarist David Eugene Edwards, formerly the front-man of 16 Horsepower. Silver Sash is his latest album due for release on 4th February 2022 via Glitterhouse. Silver Sash was created in collaboration with Chuck French of legendary American (post) hardcore outfit Planes Mistaken For Stars. Silver Sash follows the acclaimed Wovenhand albums Refractory Obdurate (2014) and Star Treatment (2016). Silver Sash was composed, recorded and produced in their homes in Denver by David and Chuck, along with engineer Jason Begin”. 

Silver Sash sounds big, it sounds accomplished, more importantly, Silver Sash sounds different, if comparisons must be made then the aforementioned Scott Walker, a hint of Nick Cave, a far more dense Echo and The Bunnymen messing with the more adventurous side of Celtic Frost maybe? Nothing like any of that through, the richness of Michael J Sheehy, of Swans, of Gallon Drunk.  David Eugene Edwards has a warm voice, a big voice, his words are alive with dark colour, they work so so well within the composition, within the whole of these pieces. Dead Dead Beat is heavy, formidably so – so much depth here – digging a hole to the pit of our souls – this is a collection of brooding atmospheres, proper songs, a proper album, a full-bodied richly detailed that reveals more of those secrets with every listen.  Everything about Silver Sash feels big, ambitious, a group of musicians needing the challenging themselves – this is a painterly album, thick layers of oil paint rather than the rush of an acrylic-laden brush, evocative, a proper proper rock album and a body of work that demands you take it all in at once rather than bites of it grabbed off some streaming platform or other –  a proper album that needs holding, studying, admiring. Proper.  (sw)

Silver Sash to be released February 4, 2022 

Glitterhouse Records is extremely happy to announce the release of the new Wovenhand album on Feb 4th, 2022. “Silver Sash” shows David Eugene Edwards and his band in finest form once again. As a special edition, strictly limited to 1.000 copies, a pressing in silver vinyl will be made. 

„Silver Sash is a totally unique record for Wovenhand. all done at home, lots of electronics, mixed during a pandemic, backs to the wall. It's another feather in the wild hat that is the wovenhand catalog.“ - Chuck French 

Silver Sash is the first sign of life by David Eugene Edwards since the critically acclaimed Star Treament in 2016. The new album is the first Wovenhand opus completely written in cooperation with Chuck French, who is also known as a guitarist for aggressive Emocore outfit Planes Mistaken For Stars. Both know each other for ages. Finally they found the time to write this astonishing piece of an album. „The music was recorded in my house in Denver with the help of our dear friend Jason Begin. David recorded his vocals at his house (which also happens to be 3 blocks away). I had a bunch of music in various states of existence, of various ages, languishing in my computer. I made a playlist for David and we just started to devour them bit by bit. Some were scrapped, but most were utilized“ says French. The making of Silver Sash has taken longer than for any previous Wovenhand album. It took more than 4 years until both artists were satisfied with the outcome. 

Silver Sash opens with a mighty clash that is Temple Timber, followed by the forward pushing Acacia “galloping across the dry grass fields on a horse into the white bark forest”. Song #3 Duat Hawk is the mystic counterpart, focussing on Edwards’ rich, billowing and emotive voice that was always the driving force of his music. Next is the first single Dead Dead Beat which kicks off full tilt. The song’s galloping drums, hard hitting guitars and Edwards’ soaring voice compels us to rise and join the fray. 9 new songs in total were recorded that despite their power and heavyness have lost nothing of its magic and hypnotics as the closing and title track of the album will prove, „the Namesake. It's a jovial good-bye“ says French. Powerful, subtile and intensly deep. Uniting the calm and mystic side of the early Wovenhand years with the straight forward yet still magic songs of his latest albums. 

Over the last two decades, his prolific work in both Wovenhand and the legendary 16 Horsepower has influenced and inspired a generation of musicians throughout the expansive alternative music world. The band cannot be described in traditional terms. Their sound is an organic weavework of neo-folk, post rock, punk, old-time, and alternative sounds. All coming together as a vehicle for David's soulful expression and constant spiritual self exploration. Sometimes sad and sorrowed and at other times uplifting, Wovenhand are always unforgettable in spirit and sound. We're more than happy to release the new Wovenhand album entitled 'Silver Sash' on 04/02/2022 via Glitterhouse Records followed by extensive touring.
