You might have lost track of Wooden Wand some years back.
Well, Mr. Press Release, some might have, but I certainly didn’t. He’s right… ugh! That rascal! Where did he go??
No one would blame you.
I blame me! He, James Jackson Toth, the fella at the center of Wooden Wand was right here a minute ago. I saw him!
But even those that couldn’t hope to keep up with the endlessly prolific Mr. Toth took notice of 2011’s ragged glorious Briarwood album.
Now you’re really starting to hurt my feelings, Press Release. Are you just looking for a reason to fire me as Toth’s babysitter? I need that money! Don’t you think I’m capable of telling the people about Briarwood? Remember when we talked about that re-issued version with the demo tracks? I’m totally aware of this year’s Blood Oaths of the New Blues (TMT Review). I’d describe it as sorta, I don’t know, spookier, and maybe a little more languid than Briarwood…
The languid and spooky 2013 follow-up, Blood Oaths of the New Blues …
I JUST SAID THAT! I KNOW THINGS!
Like its two predecessors, Wooden Wand & the World War IV was…
Okay, Press Release, are you gonna let me do the heavy lifting here or not? I mean, I did read you after all. Maybe I get a little distracted sometimes, but I can certainly inform these nice folks about the new release, Wooden Wand & the World War IV. I know it was recorded with the same group of folks that worked with Toth on Briarwood and Blood Oaths of the New Blues down in Homewood, Alabama. I am also well aware of the fact that it’s out on Three Lobed recordings on October 15, and that you can pre-order it now. It’s also part of a limited release (1000 copies), so we should all act fast, especially since, as we’ve seen, Toth is feisty and mysterious.
