LP version. "The Woody Nightshade takes an amble down a slightly different route along Sharron Kraus' musical path. Reminiscent of the expanded instrumentation and compositional arrangements found on The Fox's Wedding (on David Tibet/Current 93's Durtro/Jnana label, 2008), gone are the traditional folk tools of the trade, such as the familiar use of banjo and fiddles, in favor of drums, electric guitar and bass. While that may sound as though Kraus has 'gone electric', she uses this foray into broader instrumentation as texture and color, wrapping coarse velvet and splashing subtle earth tones over her songs. Kraus's signature has always been her distinctive vocals, and her idiosyncratic siren sound is in top form throughout."
"...spooky consort music, fecund and mysterious as a Samuel Palmer watercolour." -- The Wire
