WOVENHAND 'Star Treatment'
Regular price €40,00
14 years after the band showed its first sign of life with their self-titled debut, David Eugene Edwards (who's prolific work in both WOVENHAND and the legendary 16 Horsepower has influenced a generation of musicians) releases Star Treatment'. While WOVENHAND ought to be a familiar name to anyone interested in forward-thinking music, the album title 'Star Treatment' isn’t a reference to our celebrity culture obsession. Rather, it’s a clever reference to concepts of astrolatry, or humanity’s enduring interest in the stars of the night sky: “It’s ethereal in its concept,” Edwards explains. “There are many layers, as always. I’ve been paying attention to the stars in the sky and in literature, and it’s a theme throughout the album.” The current lineup includes guitarist Chuck French, bassist Neil Keener (both of Planes Mistaken For Stars) and drummer Ordy Garrison, now joined by piano/synth player Matthew Smith (Crime & The City Solution). 'Star Treatment' was recorded at Steve Albini’s legendary Electrical Audio in Chicago with engineer Sanford Parker, who also helmed WOVENHAND's 2014 album 'Refractory Obdurate'.
