ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Wood Floors Divorce Sale


It’s time to pull up a chair and put your money on the table, because The Wood Floors have returned from the recording studio, and are dealing out a fine set of dark tunes to all that think their about ready to cash in.
The album is “Divorce Sale”, and be ready to pick up some deals on lost loves, crushed hopes, and spent emotions, because this sale has a lot to offer. Never deserting their knack for melodic recounts of traumatizing times, The Wood Floors deliver stand out tracks such as “All Come True”, “A Dollar and Change”, and “You’re Right, You Know”. At this sale, the songs offer more than just an ear-pleasing hook; they have a heart-breaking honesty. Recordings such as “The Girl I Once Knew” and “When You’re Over Me” capture a desperate mood that will linger with listeners until the early hours of the dawn.
Singer/guitarist Chris Howe delivers lyrics and chords that are poetic and lushly seductive in their composition, but with Eric Scheiner’s stark drumming you can’t help but feel the beats rub raw the emotions of the vocals. Solid bass playing makes the musical bridge between the two, and it’s an interesting journey. While the somber lyrics may bring cold truths to a head, you can’t help but feel the ending of one situation (or song) hasn’t given birth to something new. On “Divorce Sale” The Wood Floors elegantly capture the shards of broken dreams and arrange them in a way that insinuates fresh powers and possibilities.



According to drummer Eric Scheiner: “The first time I spoke to Chris Howe, I eyed him the same way a person would a snake trying to decide if it was venomous. It was the right gaze to give. I think at the time maybe he was.”

It was the mid 1990’s, and these two snakes would soon be charmed by music, intoxicating themselves with the sights and sounds of the Boston/New England music scene of the time. Performing on and off again in various bands for half of that decade.

Then in 2003, after some time apart, singer/songwriter Howe and Scheiner decided to get together again and try something completely different. The concept was The Wood Floors. A band that would attempt to capture the energy of creation, by writing and recording on the spot. They started with an album called “The Bitter End” and moved quickly onto “Cursory Interest”, “Violence” and “Knowing Girls”. These albums featured big hooks, catchy melodies, and lyrics about women who could make you feel weak in the knees, or simply take you down and out at the same location. At this time they were also playing live as well. Having adopted the stage names of James Jennison and Buzz Halliday they played with a variety of bassists, and went on to record the more polished and rehearsed “For Rodriguez”, “Girls Inc.” and “Divorce Sale” between 2004 and 2005.

Their previous releases had gained them a cult following, and a local buzz. In 2006, they went back to the spur of the moment writing style and their real names, with “Every Act Of Pleasure” and quickly followed it up with the double album “Catwalks in the Coliseum”, before moving onto the cinematic LP “Enfant Terrible”. Women and the darker elements of relationships have remained constant themes throughout.

Adding new power and dynamics to their sound in ’06 are bass player Nick Poulin and rhythm guitarist Nick Blanchette. “The line-up and sound of The Wood Floors has never been better”, says Howe.

The Wood Floors’ sound embraces a wide spectrum of influences and ideas, but reaction to it is always similar: “The powerful sort of bad magic you are looking for, that much is certain.” (The Noise 6/2/04), “catchy” with “dark undertones” (HippoPress 8/2/04), and “Essential, thoughtful, brilliant pop music.” (Echo 4/7/06)

With 10 recordings in three years The Wood Floors have tasted from a rare fruit in the music industry, creative proliferation. “The problem with the Floors' mounting cannon is not qualitative, but a question of how to approach such a prolific entity.” (Echo 4/7/06)
A problem that is easily solved with an attentive ear, a damaged heart, and a thirsty soul. Turn up the Floors and drink your fill.


The Wood Floors 6th CD contains an even mix of rockers and quiet, moody tunes. Originally recorded in Nov./Dec. of 2004, Divorce Sale finally sees the light of day in 2006 on Sidebar Records.
Standout tracks include:
All come true, You're right you know, and Up by design.

Crisp and dark
This is a dark, crisp sounding pop album a la the Replacements "Don't tell a soul". These guys have a way of mixing ominous lyrics with hooky melodies. It's enjoyable!

Finally! Greatness!
About time these guys got out another one. Love them. The songs are good although the production is a little lacking when compared to the other albums by the. Damn catchy tunes though, "In this town" is worth the price alone.
