After what seems like an uncharacteristically long silence, longstanding MM fave Wooden Wand has shared details of a new album, Clipper Ship, to be released on the 5th May.
The first taste from it is Mexican Coke, a typically understated, gently strummed and elegant folk song that reminds us all of what we’ve been missing these past months. Lyrically there are few who can match his way with words – somehow managing in a few short turns of phrase to be genuinely thought provoking, reflective, poignant and occasionally slyly humorous.
The evidence is all there in Mexican Coke – a subtle gem and a very welcome return.
