Album Notes
With his unforgettable blend of unrestrained energy and tight songwriting, Eric Wolfson burst upon the East Village's Antifolk scene in early 2006 and quickly became a house staple; within months, he appeared in a New York Times article covering the scene and was sharing the stage with the likes of Suzanne Vega and Jason Trachtenburg.

Earlier this year saw his first release - his signature song/mantra "Sleeping Is a Sucker's Game," which kicks off the second disc of the Anticomp Folkilation and was hailed for its "scene-skewering" lyrics by American Songwriter Magazine. The song is a perfect introduction to his music. It stomps and hollers like a runaway train heading towards the North Country, with singing that combines the restlessness of early Springsteen, the earnestness of Jonathan Richman, and the feisty protest of Bob Dylan.

But all of this was just the warm-up to Wolfson's first full-length release, State Street Rambler, which Urban Folk Magazine raves "is a glorious mash-up of swaggering rock'n'roll that sounds just like you immersed your head in a bucket of 1969, simple, evocative balladry, and loony truth-to-power talking blues…It's an unbridled wild horse of a record, with a fat streak of goofy humor and not a little social outrage." The album was recorded live in the studio with members of Creaky Boards, Soft Black, and Tulsa.
