  • Wooden Wand has always been the vehicle for singer-songwriter James Toth's unique musical sensibilities, and nowhere is this more apparent than on the band's seventh album, JAMES & THE QUIET. In fact, JAMES & THE QUIET seems more like a showcase for Toth's stripped-down tunes than a platform for the experimental washes that characterized early Wooden Wand releases. In this setting Toth's songs are more accessible, yet--with their alluring melodies and abstract, poetic lyrics--still utterly distinctive. This album might prove a good starting place for listeners tentative about the more extreme experimentalism of some freak folk.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.127) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith precisely constructed, mildly wracked songs that sit between outsider folk and outlaw country."

Alternative Press (p.170) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "11 tracks of rather straightforward ballads. A wry, often dark humor surfaces from time to time as Toth wends his lyrical way through acoustic glimpses into the void."

The Wire (p.56) - "The drums pack a serious wallop, the guitars twang and sizzle with lazy intent, and Jessica Toth provides a valuable foil with her husky voice..."

CMJ (p.42) - "The highlight is 'Delia,' a delicate gem heavily reliant on co-arranger/vocalist Jessica Toth's effortless interjections..."

CMJ (p.46) - "Lo-fi acoustics and haunting rhythms are capped off with the smartly sparse production of Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo."
