“Down In The Woods” — Superb New Single By Richard Hawley

This made me sit up and take notice when I heard it on BBC6. I’m not familiar with Richard Hawley, but apparently his latest album, “Standing at the Sky’s Edge” (from which this single was taken), is a big departure from the tender balladeering for which he’s best known. This is droning but hard-charging raga space rock (or something like that) and it’s really very, very good.
