Woodshop got good and hard in Studio 5 this week, busting out some serious countrified punky rock in the name of good times and good jams. Consisting of Mike Lynch on the kit, Jeff Schwarz on vocals, guitar, professional whistles, and brother Eric Schwarz on vocals, harp, washboard, and one seriously badass kazoo, this threesome delivers a crunchy wall of sound that encapsulates a tongue-in-cheek good times vibe and shot of lyrical sobriety simultaneously. The rhythms are deceptively transparent, the guitars deliver a down-home, life-is-good vibe that backs up an aggressively honest armada of vocals. The entire thing sounds like it just might bring you to tears, or make you smile with ecstasy, or smile with ecstasy while being brought to tears and also grabbing the second of a six pack of your favorite domestic beer.
Catch these ultra-bad dudes playing around the Minneapolis / Saint Paul scene as soon as you possibly can.
