The Hill and Wood

The Hill and Wood by The Hill and Wood   (November 11, 2011) *

We can think of more than a few musicians who claimed their albums would be a mix tape showcasing the breadth of their style, but we can hardly think of any that actually delivered.  Without feeling forced or awkward, The Hill and Wood’s self-titled EP showcases not only the band’s technical skill and talent, but also their fearlessness to employ it in creative ways throughout the record.

From the first track to the last, The Hill and Wood leads the listener through a sometimes folky, sometimes rock and roll, ceaselessly melodic journey. The album moves naturally, but carefully, going slowly one minute and fast the next – a smart move that makes the album virtually indispensible for the folk-rock fan.
