Blood Oaths Of The New Blues

Blood Oaths Of The New Blues by Wooden Wand
Released: Jan 2013
Label: Fire Records
With its deep gulfs of acoustic resonance and profound emphasis on the notes that are left out, Blood Oaths of the New Blues falls somewhere between Scott Tuma's droning, country-folk deconstructions and the exquisitely atmospheric melancholy of outlaw visionary Mickey Newbury. In regards to lyrics and voice, the Wand sounds significantly more withdrawn than he did on the preceding Briarwood; that same uncanny knack for detail is present (see "Outsider Blues"), but it's hard to determine from which said details have emerged: dreams, memory or reality? Then again, maybe that's the point.
