WWSP's "The Alternate Boot!"

No Cats Killed in the Dissection!

It is gratifying when folks take the time to listen to, and to write about our music. Jay Freeman at the music blog Divide and Conquer reviews our record "The Alternate Boot." He actually does a track by track dissection of the record. Not as painful as it sounds. I mean, sometimes you dissect the cat, and you end up with a dead cat, but this is quite good, excellent writing, knowledgable ears, no cats killed in the process.

Jay plays that game, "What do they sound like?" Pretty funny. It is difficult to write about music without drawing upon other sounds & artists. Influences & precursors. We all have them. This list is crazy good: The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, REM, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Gordon Lightfoot, Loreena McKennitt, Cowboy Junkies, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Dire Straits & Patti Smith…

Yeah, ok, I’d say mix all those together in a waring blender… add a bit of lightening, blood, sweat, tears, and a healthy dash of eucalyptus, and you get something approximating whitewolfsonicprincess' folk-rock, groove-machine vibe! Anyway, well done. Happy the review is dropping now. Good timing. Our show at SPACE is next week, Wednesday, Sept 4. All arrows are pointing forward. We are ready to make a joyful noise.
