WOODEN WAND: JAMES & THE QUIET


Wooden Wand
The prolific James Jackson Toth, working under the nom-de-tune Wooden Wand has released some 20-plus albums over a handful of years. However, Toth considers James & The Quiet (due June 12 on Ecstatic Peace!) 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. "I wanted it to be an un-weird record," Toth says. The road-weary songwriter had been spending a lot of time with old Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings records, and wanted to transcend the 'psychedelic' connotations he'd been pegged with since his days fronting The Vanishing Voice. He wanted to do what Elvis Costello did on Imperial Bedroom or Leonard Cohen did on I'm Your Man - he wanted to not give the people what they wanted but instead endeavor to follow his muse and create something different.
