'Alive' is the first vinyl outing from Keith Wood's Hush Arbors since his split 7" with Jerusalem and the Starbaskets on The Great Pop Supplement back in 2008. Hush Arbors is the project of Mr Keith Wood, a good friend of Blackest Rainbow, who has also played in Wooden Wand, Six Organs of Admittance, Zodiacs, Sunburned Hand of the Man, and with Thurston Moore. Hush Arbors ever evolving sound pretty much encapsulates everything he does with these other fine projects, but Keith has definitely got his own thing going on with his fine song writing skills, whether its delivered with his beautiful acoustic playing or wild electric shredding. This double LP set comprises of two live recordings from Hush Arbors, the first being 'Live, Heeley Institute, Sheffield, England' which was actually the first ever release on Blackest Rainbow back in 2007, it was released in an edition of 101 copies on CDR. I'm personally very excited to finally have this out on vinyl, as it really is a fantastic set of Keith and his acoustic guitar playing what was one of the best venues that was frequently used here in Sheffield, so many great performances went down there (remember MV & EE's set from there that Singing Knives released?), and Keith's really was a great night. The second LP is 'Live from Kittery, Maine', a set from 12th February 2011. A whole different sound to Hush Arbors with this one... Keith is joined by Jason Ajemian and John Moloney (Sunburned Hand of the Man). Keith's sound has developed from the loner psyche folk of his earlier records and 'Heeley' to a more bourbon soaked country rock out vibe, as you'll hear on the Kittery set. 'Alive' is a fantastic example of two great, yet very different, performances the ever changing Hush Arbors. Pressed on heavyweight virgin vinyl and housed in a gatefold jacket, edition of 350 copies.
