Woolen Men - Post
Tuesday was starting a bit slow for us, and we desperately needed a helping hand. Our friends down the road in Portland, a trio known as Woolen Men, came to the rescue with Post -- nine tracks of well-crafted punk, taut post punk, and guitar pop that have given us the energy to do our jobs. If that seems to be a broad canvass, be assured that this is a band that can fully cover the spectrum. The rhythms section is sprightly and steady, and the band fully fleshes out every song as if it were the lead single. This is the band's fifth album, and in our opinion it is their most accessible and satisfying yet. So our thanks to Woolen Men for rescuing our Tuesday morning.
Woolen Men are Raf Spielman (drums), Alex Geddes (bass), and Lawton Browning (guitar). Post is out now in digital and vinyl formats via Dogs Table (see the Bandcamp link below).
