Music I Liked And Didn't - 12/1/07 - 12/2/07
VOICE OF THE SEVEN WOODS: Seventh Step CD-EP (No Label, Self-Released) - “Seventh Step” is one of two new self-released EPs from Rick Tomlinson’s Voice Of the Seven Woods. It was originally sold only at shows during their 2007 Summer tour and it contains four tracks. After the overloaded drone of the short opening title track, this set really kicks into high gear with “Blizzard Of Two”, a ripping psychedelic jam of the first order, featuring a righteous groove and killer electric leads. Next comes “Broken Hearts”, another brief droner, this time, more atmospheric in nature, which leads nicely into the disc’s lengthy (14+ minutes!) closing track “Eight Red Lights Atop The Hill”. The first half of the piece is consumed by more atmospheric drones and minimal percussive clatter which slowly build until they form a mellow, but still satisfying, segment of lysergic jamming, once again, highlighted by Tomlinson’s work on electric guitar. While “Seventh Step” from Voice Of the Seven Woods is certainly not a major musical statement, it is an enjoyable dose of contemporary psychedelia.
