Lander LIVE Summer Concert Series 2019
All concerts are Thursdays, 5-9 pm
Lander LIVE continues on Thursday, August 15th with The Wood Brothers
with opener Low Water String Band.
Two brothers decide to form a band, adapting the blues, folk and other roots‐music sounds they loved as kids into their own evocative sound and twining their voices in the sort of high‐lonesome harmony blend for which sibling singers are often renowned. The bands new dynamic sound combination blends Plaintive country-folk, Americana soul, wistful ballads and Saturday night barnburners for a unique mixture of Americana, Folk Rock, and Rock.
The Wood Brothers’ sixth album, ‘One Drop of Truth,’ dives headfirst into a deep wellspring of sounds, styles, and influences. Whereas their previous outings have often followed a conceptual and sonic through-line, here the long-standing trio featuring brothers Oliver and Chris Wood along with Jano Rix treat each song as if it were its own short film. The plaintive, country-folk of the album’s opening track “River Takes The Town” gives way to the Band-Esque Americana soul of “Happiness Jones.” The wistful ballad “Strange As It Seems” floats on a cloud of stream of consciousness, standing in stark contrast to “Sky High”—a Saturday night barnburner built upon stinging slide guitar funk. “Seasick Emotions” is rife with turmoil, yet “Sparking Wine” is jaunty and carefree. The end result is undeniably The Wood Brothers’ most dynamic recording to date. –www.thewoodbros.com
