Right off the bat, after pressing play on Wooden Temple, I’m reminded of the extremely underrated ambient trio KILN and to an extent, The Caretaker and Huerco S. As Space & Sound makes note of, Wooden Temple is filled with brooding mood & texture. Wooden Temple might allude to a hulking tree, the forest as a whole or, hey, it might not mean anything at all. As I listen to this, I can’t help but envision myself walking around a misty forest at dawn. The clouds have all but consumed the blue sky, yet there’s a blue haze. The mist floats down to the rich soil and on top of your head endlessly – the water’s not too hot and not too cold. The crackling heard throughout the tape just reinforces this forest I’m envisioning, by giving the imaginary branches I traipse on a “voice.” Anyway, what you get for $7 is this extremely limited tape, a koozie, stickers and a digital copy for download. Sounds like a good deal to me. Listen to Wooden Temple below via the Soundcloud player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
