I cannot ignore the fact that Woven Hand’s forthcoming album is called The Laughing Stalk. It is so suspiciously close in title to Talk Talk’s Laughing Stock that it makes me hope for some homage to that dense, yet ambitiously quiet masterpiece. Alas, “Glistening Black” is what you’d expect out of Woven Hand: An electric, roaring piece of Dust Bowl terror. And that’s what I always want out of Woven Hand, but… the Laughing Stock tease is just too much. I can only imagine what a budget-draining, impossible-to-produce-live album from David Eugene Edwards would sound like.
