…gorgeous psych-rock worthy of San Francisco’s golden age, it seems they (Wooden Finger) didn’t want to wait six more years to shame The Decemberist’s and Arcade Fire.
— J.R. Taylor (Black & White)
Jackson, MS based, Wooden Finger began as a collaboration between Matthew Magee and Allison Jenkins. Their diverse musical backgrounds resulted in 2006 debut LP All This Time…Still We’re Lost, which was a haunting blend of atmospheric folk rock and cinematic baroque pop. They are now releasing their much anticipated sophomore recording, Take and See and Do What You Want, which has a distinctly more rhythmic direction. Magee and Jenkins are now joined by Ryan Baucum (bass), Chip Burr (drums) and Jason Daniel (guitar) which has resulted in a much more driving, uplifting, and energetic pop feel. They plan to tour extensively in support of this new recording.
