Music I Liked And Didn't - 4/17/07
HUSH ARBORS: Since We Have Fallen LP (Harvest Recordings) - Hush Arbors is the mostly solo project of Keith Wood, who has performed with many groups, most notably Sunburned Hand Of The Man, Six Organs Of Admittance, and Wooden Wand And The Vanishing Voice. This deluxe LP package reissues early Hush Arbors material that was originally released as a limited edition CDR on Foxglove. The A-Side contains four tracks, ranging from the sublime blend of lush drones and experimental tones of the opening track "As The Spring Breaks", to the title tracks’s wasted acid folk, and the atmospheric acoustic guitar mantra “Blanca Peak”. A side long piece "Spell Against Demons" closes out the album. It begins with another tasty segment of improvised acid folk which continues to build until the percussion kicks in to propel layers of alien synth sounds. With “Since We Have Fallen” Wood has created a work which truly equals the best output of his many well known peers.
