WOVEN SKULL - Moods of the Hill People - FEF3 - SOLD OUT

Woven Skull formed in 2008 and are based in Co. Leitrim, consisting of core members Natalia, Aonghus and Willie, and occasional guests. Their mostly acoustic, recurrent, and resonant sounds and structures are inspired by the woods and bogs that surround them. 

'Moods of the Hill People' was recorded last year at Drumnadubber Wood and in St John's Church, Drumshambo, and is reminiscent of the pastoral side of Faust, Amon Düül  or Ghost (Jpn), but with an aggressively minimalist and repetitive slant. At times it could pass for an unusually focused '60s commune jam. Elsewhere the impression is of something far more and ancient and ritualistic. Mesmeric, mantric and mysterious.
