Arrowwood & novemthree split EP (2007)

Wednesday, October 29, 2008



More of a collaboration than a split, contributing musicians from both groups feature on both sides of the split.

Both projects deal with haunting folk styles, sounds that evoke a sort of timeless atmosphere of poetry and myth. Arrowwood’s contribution weaves an almost ambient haze of melancholic moods, which, lead by vocalist Chelsea Robb (with accompaniment from Pythagumus, Lindsey Hoffman, Josh Lovejoy), transports you to a time when haunting laments were the bread and butter of troubadours everywhere. Meanwhile, Novemthree (spearheaded by Pythagumus) has a sound that evokes memories of the spooky pastoral folk found on The Wicker Man Sountrack.

The EP is a release on the new Little Somebody Records label, who utilizes unique packaging (two mini-CDs with some marvelous graphic design) to create a treasured collectors item. This is music that beckons you towards a dark wood, and you should heed its call. - A Sweeping Curve of Sound

Check out also the 7'' by The Joy of Nature that came out through Little Somebody as well.

Yeah I recently checked out some of The Joy of Nature's stuff. It's great. I might have to grab that 7" at some point.

Wow, Arrowwood is so great! Any idea where I can get a copy of Hemlock And Spindle Flower, or am I just out of luck?

Hello,

Yeah you're out of luck I think, I'd love a copy of that too. I think there's a new Arrowwood record on the way though, on little somebody as usual, so keep an eye out for that.

Best,
WV

Just noticed this on the Little Somebody myspace page - "I have 6 found original numbered copies... So let me know if you want one"

In reference to Hemlock and Spindle Flower. Be quick!
