Windhand

There will be a new Mix Eclectic up soon and also a page of recommended bands and albums to check out but for now there is Windhand.

This album is getting a lot of plays on Bandcamp from me at the moment and the more I listen to it the more I like it. The sound these guys create is absolutely gigantic and that wall of sounds is topped off by a voice that really sets them apart from their peers.

The vocals may be fairly subtle in the mix but you tell can straight off the bat that Dorthia Cottrell knows what she's up to. The melodies do a lot more than just follow the riffs and there is a character to her voice that is clear even in this setting. For a full review go and check out the Windhand review on The Sleeping Shaman.

There's some conflicting information about when the album is out (1st March 2012 or 21st March 2012) but either way you'll be able to get hold of the record via Mordgrimm in the UK and Europe and Forcefield Records in the USA and presumably rest of the world. If you're looking for t-shirts and stuff direct from the band then check out the Windhand Big Cartel store and if you wanna keep up with what the band is up to there here's the Windhand Facebook Page.

I decided to do a bit of searching and found exactly what I was hoping for. There's a few videos on YouTube that prove Cottrell is a talented songwriter in her own right and here's a couple of my favourites; beautiful folk-blues melancholy:
