ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"If Woody Guthrie was Irish, and grew up listening to accoustic Led Zepplin and Beck Odale, and vulcan mind-melded with Doc Watson while listening to the Beatles on his walkman..."

Wildwood is a popular, high energy band that plays gothic-flavored bluegrass, old-timey music and originals. The music is highly danceable and features piercing two and three part harmonies. Their music has a dark edge that cannot be found in any of the modern feel good "Newgrass" groups. There is a power and dark cynicism present in the music that is more reminiscent of blues or perhaps even underground rock.
Roadside Psalm is Wildwood's second album. Their first album, "Lonesome Hideaway," won ALBUM OF THE YEAR at the Northwest Arkansas Music Awards this year, and is also available here on CD baby.
On October 8, 2003, Wildwood appeared on Public Radio International's "Whad'Ya Know" with Michael Feldman. Over 1.5 million people were listening world-wide. They have been featured prominently in all of the local print media, featured on the cover on three occasions, and have garnered the following honors: 2004 OMA Album of the Year, 2004 NAMA Band of the Year, 2004 OMA Accoustic Band of the Year, 2004 NAMA Best Accoustic/folk Band, 2003 NAMA Best New Band, 2003 NAMA Best Americana/Folk Band, and were finallists for 2002 OMA Best New Band, 2003 NAMA Band of the Year, and 2004 NAMA Album of the year. Their music has been featured on four compilation disks, an Arkansas kayaking DVD, several independant films, and the latest instalment of the popular Sims video game series, "Sim Space Station."
All of the members are multi-instrumental and they switch several times through the show, making for an entertaining and impressive musical experience. Their two CDs, "Lonesome Hideaway" and "Roadside Psalm" demonstrate the wide variety of musical modes and instrumental sounds utilized by this experimental roots music band.

Great sound, hear them live!
I first heard this band on NPR, and I must confess hearing them live is even better than on cd. But that is not a knock on their cd. It is great! Well written songs, performed well. The group sounds tight. There is great variety on the cd collected together to make a well rounded display of what this group can do. Definitely give it a try, and again, if you get the chance to see them perform live.....take it.

If your grass is blue this is for you
Buy this cd and see them live. Really. I don't even live there. The second cd is excellent, thoughtful lyrics and well picked (ha ha) tunes. My favorite is 41, an interesting ditty about Lizzy Borden, yes the murderous gal who killed her parents. Something for everybody though - good for dancing, stomping, chilling, drinking, driving (not in sequence of course), and all your other life needs.
