Headdress – Lunes
Formerly known as Worship (they released a small cd-r pressing under that moniker), the elusive group who now answer to the name Headdress continue their dusk lit creep through the enchanted wilderness. On their debut Turquoise, they craft a beautiful loosely woven tapestry of ivy-like guitar tendrils, lichen-encrusted percussion, solemn mossy male vocals that reside somewhere between Jandek and M. Ward.
The album’s fifth song “Babylon” sounds strangely like a deconstructed folk rendition of America’s “Horse With No Name”. Whether intentional or not, the glinting familiarity of the latter’s central melody adds to the existing subtle hallucinatory atmosphere of the proceedings.
The crowning jewel of rough hewn Turquoise though is the sixth track titled “Moon Of Shedding Ponies”. It’s a frayed, meditative instrumental populated with generous turns of a rainstick and what sounds like howling wolves or banshees.
If you dig the rustic, abstracted psych folk sounds of Wooden Wand & the Vanishing Voice and the many bewitching branches of the Jewelled Antler Collective, don’t miss this!
