Woven is taken from his latest EP Late Afternoon In The Meadow (1887) and invites you into an enchanting reverie where haunting fiddle melodies dance with warm banjo notes, delicate acoustic guitar, and Burnside's entirely immersive vocals, resulting in exceptional folk diamond that entices you to listen again and again.
Gold from cinematic, experimental synth-pop artist Opāru will dive you into a sea of shimmery 80 synth-pop beats, acoustic guitars, majestic vocals, and inspiring lyrics that reflect the transitional journey as we move from darkness to light. A wholly unique and inspiring listening experience.
