Woodworkings – Day Breaks The Morning Shapes We Speak
As far as new posts on musical recommendations goes here on Irregular Crates, this will be the last of 2013. The next few will be our end of year run-down but before we go into that, we’d just like to draw to your attention a release just about to drop on one of our favourite labels – Own Records. The latest in their magnificent collection sees the return of Woodworkings, whose last release was ‘Goodbye Homes’ on Future Recordings in 2011. What’s more, in addition to the usual digital option this is available on 12″ vinyl; a format absolutely perfect for Woodworkings.
Goodbye Homes was a sort of EP, with three mid-length modern classical tracks given the subtle electronics/noise treatment. From that day I have been awaiting an album release to emerge and I came to the point of wondering whether it would ever come to be. Thankfully, the two year absence has yielded a wonderful eight track album on the always trusty Own imprint.
In ‘Day Breaks The Morning Shapes We Speak’, Kyle Woodworth explores an expanded palette of sonic material in rich swathes of strings, haunting passages of drone, warm guitar, chimes, choral swirls and the lightest of noise. I don’t know whether it is just the time of year, but it is all very seasonal – mirroring the colder climate beautifully.
The album is officially released on the 12th of December but you can get your pre-order in now by clicking HERE
