Today marks the release of Magnolia by the Wooden Birds (myspace). As you may have learned from my post about the band, they’re the new band of Andrew Kenny of American Analog Set. It also has member of Ola Podrida and Lymbyc Systym in it. As I mentioned in that previous post, Magnolia is a really great record and I’d recommend it, especially if you like American Analog Set-like acoustic drone pop.

I’m proud to announce that ipickmynose will be presenting their show at the Rickshaw Stop on May 31. If the two shows of theirs that I saw at SxSW are indication, this will be a really good one.

You can buy Magnolia from insound (or they have it on vinyl + mp3). Rumor has it that the first handful of CDs are autographed by Andrew Kenny himself.


Wooden Birds at SxSW

Two local bands are opening the show. The first of those is The Old Fashioned Way, a local, baritone-voiced indie pop band that’s been getting some good press in the area.

Rounding out the bill is Goh Nakamura (myspace), a local songwriter that I’m excited to see. His music reminds me at times of late-era Elliott Smith, though there are many influences that go into his music.

If you want to hear more of Goh’s stuff, you can get Ulysses, his most recent album for free at his website. You can also check out the Bay Bridged feature podcast about him.

Here’s the info you need to know for the show:

5/31 the Wooden Birds, the Old-Fashioned Way, Goh Nakamura @ Rickshaw Stop, 8pm, $10 (advance)/$12 (door), a/a

Buy tickets for the show. I’d like to point out that the Rickshaw Stop has been pretty rad and set up their own online ticketing service with $1.25 service fees, so it’s actually 75 cents cheaper to buy tickets ahead of time, even with the fee.
