WOODEN WAND AND THE OMEN BONES BAND Horus of the Horizon CD EP

Released as part of Three Lobed Recording's super limited “Modern Containment” series, James Toth and friends work up six excellent Dylanesque psych-folk tracks that shake out the ghosts of '63 and deliver for 2006. While you can never guess what Wooden Wand will spin, as their expansive catalog doesn't necessarily follow any particular common thread, this is a fairly straightforward effort from Toth and friends, Keith Wood and Satya Sai that should open some eyes and ears. While rooted mostly underground, Wooden Wand has consistently delivered quality that seems to go relatively unnoticed. This is unfortunate since they deserve the recognition that far lesser bands have been receiving just for mere association to the Banhart stable. However, Wooden Wand seems to be picking up momentum as the most recent CD was released on Kill Rock Stars and they've been tapped for a brief North East tour opening for Sonic Youth.

Unfortunately, Horus of the Horizon may be next to impossible to track down since the EP is part of a nine CD series that includes Sun City Girls, Bardo Pond, Sun Burned Hand of the Man, MV & EE, as well as Kim and Thurston's Mirror Dash and is only available as a set through Three Lobed or individually from each band.
