WOODPECKERS

Thanks Anyway

2012-08-19

New York band, Woodpeckers, have gone in a completely different direction with its second release, Thanks Anyway. Letting go of its pop-punk past, the group has put on a new personae as an alt-folk-Americana band. Thanks Anyway is full of engaging lyrics and vocal harmonies backed by diverse bluegrass instrumentation such as banjo, cello, and melodica. The album as a whole is quiet with occasional orchestral flourishes that compliment the narrative nature of the songs. Rebecca Ruth
