ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

Woody was formed in Buffalo, NY in the summer of 1993. Locked in the middle of the frozen Tundra (even though it was August) and recovering from four Superbowl losses, Woody was born mostly out of frustration and boredom.

Woody has appeared as an opening act in support of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Ween, Fat Joe, The Gandharvas, The Violent Femmes and Too Much Joy. Woody has won the "Jagermeister Rocks Best Unsigned Band" competition, was nominated in the "Best Rock Band" category in the Buffalo Music Awards, and has earned slots in various showcases throughout the Northeast.

Woody is a consistent top-charting band on popular regional and national independent music web sites, such as IUMA, mp3.Boston.com, Garageband.com and Soundclick.



RANDOM PRESS FOR "WOODY":

Woody and the Violent Femmes: A Frolicking Good Time in the Williams Center, by Kevin Hallmark, Fredonia State Leader

Woody and the Violent Femmes enlightened the Fredonia area with a concert full of fresh songwriting and solid, airborne energy. Each band successfully created sound originating in obscurity, then splashing out in waves of wit. This was a Saturday night that one could willfully choose to hang out on campus and have a bit of fun.

Opening the show, Woody broke out on stage with their usual intensity, pulling the crowd in behind the infectious rhythm of "The Handsome Man" and the sheer brilliance of "Lottery". Jon Matt and Jeff constructed an impressive set list bursting with the expected, enjoyable quirks that are distinctive of a Woody show.

Anyone who has a chance to catch a set of Woody will appreciate the interestingly ambivalent, visionary status of what they are attempting to say. Above all, what the see music as, is a source of pure enjoyment. Synthesize they lyrics with the ominously slithering music, and what is created is a powerful, thought-driven atmosphere of enticing mesmerization.

Woody, once again, performed with the inherent musical genius that defines them in the local music scene. They have successfully proved themselves to be a band with the talent and energy to play a show anywhere, for anyone.



Woody - Self-Titled, by Luke Pyles, for Northeast Performer

Somehow, everything Woody does makes sense in the end. On their self-titled album, they start out with a straight-ahead alternative rock tune, and then dive into a cut that alternates between 7/8 and 6/4 time, and finally end up in a hodgepodge of hollering, homey guitar lines and relaxing, barefoot bass. It's a very wild ride, yet not one that leaves the listener bewildered, not even for a second.

There's the latinish rhythmic shenanigans coated with distortion in "Bossa", the roaring yet loving wide-openness of "Prom Song" and the perfectly sensible "Zig Zag" to boot, all pleasing and ultimately satisfying.

These nine songs shift and later and mutate themselves constantly, yet we can always find our way safely out of the sonic quagmire. The album has a full sound that explores far and wide, yet is still very comprehensible and appreciable to the unschooled listener. Not bad at all.



Woody: Woody (Silver Circle Reviews) By: Tony G - The Noise

I left Woody's self-titled album in my roommate's 5-CD stereo. A few weeks passed and I was listening on Random mode, totally forgetting that Woody was in there. The first track, "Breathing Walls", started up with a roar. I turned to my roommate, remarked how awesome the song was, that it was familiar, but I forgot who the artist was. Then I realized that it was Woody, standing shoulder to shoulder with the major label artists in the remaining four CD slots.

Woody employs clever fuzz guitar hooks with lilting beats, which make you want to drive fast with the top down. They have a pure alternative pop sensibility reminiscent of the Replacements but harder edged. More like Soul Asylum, actually.

I was quite impressed with the range of instrumentation and vocals on this album. At tim
