I don't know how I haven't written about this band yet. Granted I have been slacking on these little features.
Anyway, Wood Burning Stoves are a great band from New Paltz. I have had the pleasure of playing with them on quite a few occasions. They are loud, dynamic and aggressive in the vein of Rites of Spring, Fugazi, Sonic Youth and Jawbreaker.
See for yourself.
They just released or are going to release their first album. 6 songs of distorted guitar, bass and drum goodness. Get at them at their myspace to get a hold of more of their music. mpFREEs There will be some when WBS send me some!
