Since Woven Hand's eponymous 2001 debut, David Eugene Edwards has refined his revelatory vision, atmospherics into the rusted-out gears of an apocalyptic music box. On Blush Music, this blue-eyed grandson of a Nazarene priest goes it alone again, serving up a meticulous fire-and-brimstone sermon that surpasses the work of the better known Denver-based trio he fronts, 16 Horsepower. Blush Music revamps and expands upon a number of backwoods dirges from the debut: the last record's brief cover of Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine" emerges monumentally as the fourteen-minute "Animalitos (Ain't No Sunshine)", sounding like a moment from Current 93's All the Pretty Little Horses, and including extended nonvocal passages, creepy children's voices, nocturnal bird sounds, bass drones, and the sharp rumble of burning wood. Likewise, "My Russia (Standing on Hands)" and "Your Russia (Without Hands)"-- based on the significantly briefer "My Russia"-- build momentum with shakers, simple percussion, organ wheezes, large doses of quivering feedback from a Gypsy caravan, and Edwards' deep bellow, a combination of Nick Cave shouts and Will Oldham's windswept bays. "My Russia (Without Hands)" is grounded by a heavy bassline and repeated high-pitched guitar note, and at times he sounds like a more literary, less soporific Black Heart Procession. A denser take on "Story and Pictures" skips like a creaking pin-box coffin until the mess drips away for the clear sounds of a piano and Edwards' less gravely vocal track: "As a boy I drew too near/ To the love of dust." The result of his patience and the compositional layering is a painful, almost unbelievably gorgeous. Blush Music's new material is equally tangled in the rich soil and briar patches of the deep underbrush, a transcendent call-and-response between a man and the variegated joy he's unearthed within the layers of his faith.
