Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

WOOKIEFOOT

Activate

2010-04-29

This Minneapolis jam band, Wookiefoot's fourth release. Sometimes sounding reggae ("The Bitter End" or "Words in My Mouth"), sometimes sounding funky ("Third Side of the Coin" or "From the Sun"), sometimes sounding bluegrassy (the title track or "Move Over Now"), sometimes bringing an Eastern Indian feel to the music ("Dead in the Eyes"), Wookiefoot creates music with a message in an engaging way. The message is simple..."Be the change you want to see in the world." This is cool stuff and I have respect for a band that practices what it preaches (see video embedded in CD). Rebecca Ruth
