Album Review

Judging from their debut album, In and Out and Back Again, Woven Bones aren't a garage band — they're more of a catacomb band, with their noisy blare sounding like it came right out of a dank basement that hasn't seen sunlight in decades, where the band's amps and PA are usually on the verge of shorting out due to the constant dampness. Then again, there are worse things than a little mildew, and Woven Bones show they know how to rock with great sneering enthusiasm and force despite their murky surroundings. Andrew Burr lays out sheets of fuzzy guitar while singing in a cranky squall that makes Sky Saxon sound like Antony Hegarty, and bassist Matthew Nichols and drummer Colin Ryan lay out the primitive beat steady and without frills, as steady as a heartbeat after five cups of coffee. The band's sludgy but emphatic sound doesn't offer a whole lot in the way of sonic innovation, but even if they didn't invent this stuff, they do right with it, and their fusion of the Cramps, the Scientists, and the Stooges pulls the right elements from each band and fits ‘em together like a clever hot-rodder who knows just what to do with the parts he's stripped. Woven Bones don't waste time, either — these nine tunes are over and done in a mere 26 minutes, and Burr and company don't bother littering the disc with their B-list material.

Burr, who was living in Orlando, FL at the time, dubbed the project Woven Bones in a reference to the act of crossing fingers for good luck. "I was coming out of a pretty rough period in my life, and [Woven Bones] was the thing that gave me some solid direction," he said in an interview with Spinner in 2010. Upon...
