Memory Drawings is the new project from erstwhile Hood/The Declining Winter multi-instrumentalist, Richard Adams. Our loyal readers may recall us proclaiming our love for all things Hood on several occasions, most notably in out Closing Out The Decade segment back in 09" where we gushed about the powers of the bands high water mark, Cold House. So any time we catch wind of activity from one of Hoods founding members we perk up and listen.

The band debut long player, Music For Another Loss is a mostly instrumental affair, save for the second disc that features vocal contributions from Yvonne Bruner.
