The Wood Brothers

"It's the freest album we've done, the most independent album we've done, and was the most fun we've ever had making a record," says Oliver Wood. "And most importantly, this is the most purely Wood Brothers' album we've ever made." Indeed, The Wood Brothers'sixth outing, 'One Drop of Truth,' dives headfirst into a deep wellspring of sounds, styles and influences. Whereas their previous outings have often followed a conceptual and sonic through-line, here the long-standing trio featuring brothers Oliver and Chris Wood along with Jano Rix treat each song as if it were its own short film. The plaintive, country-folk of the album's opening track "River Takes The Town" gives way to the The Band-esque Americana soul of "Happiness Jones." The wistful ballad "Strange As It Seems" floats on a cloud of stream of consciousness, standing in stark contrastto "Sky High"-a Saturday night barnburner built upon stinging slide guitar funk. "Seasick Emotions" is rife with turmoil, yet "Sparking Wine" is jaunty and carefree.The end result is undeniably The Wood Brothers' most dynamic recording to date. "Often, when you're making an album in the traditional way, there will be a unifying concept, whether that be in the approach to the music stylistically or lyrically in terms over the overallnarrative. And even though there are some themes that revealed themselves later, this one is all over the place," explains Oliver Wood. "What I really love about this record is that each one of these songs has its own little world. Thereare diver-se sounds and vibes from one track to the next." Building off the success of their previous studio album, 2015's 'Paradise,' which was dubbed "the warmest, most sublime and occasionally rowdiest Wood Brothers release yet," by American Songwriter, the band found themselves at a fortuitous crossroads. Following a tour with Tedeschi Trucks Band, high profile festival dates and sold out headline shows, the band felt free from the cyclical album release, tour, write, record and do-it-all-over-again pressures of the traditional music business.
