Sonic Youth, Wooden Wand, James and The Quiet

(PR) Sonic Youth bassist Kim Gordon must've been busy or out of town. Because one way or another, the rest of her band was involved in the making of James and The Quiet, the forthcoming album by folkadelic troubadour Wooden Wand.

Thurston Moore -- Sonic Youth's spry, eternally-teenaged guitarist/vocalist -- has signed Wooden Wand to his tastemaker Ecstatic Peace label (home of Be Your Own Pet), announcing plans for a May 15th release. The album was produced by SY guitarist Lee Ranaldo (who also plays some stringed things on the recording), and longtime SY drummer Steve Shelley provides his signature rhythmic strut.

The prolific James Jackson Toth, working under the nom-de-tune Wooden Wand has released some 20-plus albums (even he has lost count, most of them cassettes and CD-Rs only) over a handful of years. However, Toth considers James and The Quiet the third proper Wooden Wand full length. While each release has explored a psychedelic-folk wonderland, this album is far and away one of the most concisely focused and downright catchy recordings in the WW oeuvre.
