Known for his former work in 16 HORSEPOWER, DAVID EUGENE EDWARDS is the primary workhorse behind Denver’s WOVENHAND, a “band” that features an array of collaborators and specializes in old-world rooted, neo-folk that still rocks the fuck out. The Laughing Stalk is Wovenhand's sixth studio album and every song weaves a dark narrative, chalk full of biblical imagery that’s part-country and part-rock. Bringing a fiery, demonic intensity to his often stripped-down approach, WOVENHAND defies classification while melding numerous traditional and modern influences into each song. J.R. ROBINSON is a Chicago-based sound artist who works under the name WREKMEISTER HARMONIES to explore the darkest corners of minimalistic synth, drone, and ambient music, combined with visual projections he creates. Our own BRUCE LAMONT’S last LP, Feral Songs for the Epic Decline, out in 2011 via At A Loss was highlighted in SPIN’s “20 Best Metal Albums of 2011.” In their words, “thanks to LAMONT’S unholy army of loop pedals, Feral Songs is a dissonant, ritualistic swirl of Middle Eastern scales, mystery slams, ghostly moans, snaking reed work and acoustic guitars…equal parts bustling and bleak,” and tonight he's joined by his BLOODIEST bandmate ERIC CHALEFF on guitar.
