Pick up the CD if you haven’t already.
I just got the CD the other day and I gave it a couple of spins while driving to and from work. The songs are awesome and have a nice cruising feel for some of the songs. Its a great listen and all of the songs have a nice transition. – John Romano, Promotion’s Director Arcadia University Radio.
As a collection straight-forward rock songs, The Disgruntled Sherpa Project call their new album “Wildwoods” a departure from their other work, and I agree. It certainly is different from previous albums, but don’t worry, it’s still a DSP album. It’s nice to see a band move in a different direction, and they prove that they are capable of many things.
“Wildwoods” really showcases their skills as storytellers. This album is full of tales about heartache and angst, an indication that this album should be taken seriously. This is the kind of album where you set aside time to listen to the album while paying close attention to the lyrics. You can view the lyrics on this website: www.disgruntledsherpa.50megs.com. Anyone who has visited Wildwood NJ should pay close attention to the song “New Jersey Avenue,” because you might recognize some of the places that are mentioned.
Whether they continue in this genre or surprise their fans by taking yet another new direction, I know that I will be looking forward to what they have to offer. Thanks to The Disgruntled Sherpa Project, I predict that more bands will be willing to try new things. – Word of Mouth Magazine. November 2007.
The name originally conjured up images of bluegrass, Americana roots music, but The Wildwoods is in acuality a holiday spot for Atlantic coast Americans. This CD takes place there and the band paints the town in despairing colours. 8 classic rock songs and one acoustic skiffle that deal with loss, confusion and the need for hope are all equally brilliant in both form and execution. A great find. – John Graham Manchester, England.
I listened to the Wildwoos CD over the weekend. Listened to it twice, actually. I think it sounds great. Seems like every time these guys come out with a CD they keep getting better. I think Lauren Mackal’s vocals added to the songs and sounded great as well. – Dana Pinnock.
We love pretty much everything about these five guys, from their ridiculously weird name to their addictively crisp folk-rock sound. – Play Philly Magazine – Summer 2007.
