The Woosley Band is a lot twangier and rootsier than Guided By Voices ever were, but that’s the most frequent comparison. Frontman Sean Woosley’s voice sounds more like a southern version of Peter Gabriel than Robert Pollard, but the catchy, twangy tunes he pens are a joy to the ears. Veterans of the Columbus rock scene, Woosley Band have been popping up in performances in Northeast Ohio recently and hopefully that will continue. Live, they dish out gloriously sloppy Pavement-style alternative country-rock that’s deeply infectious to listen to. Keep your eyes peeled for more local shows and make sure to catch these guys while you can. In the meantime you can pick up all of their albums on Amazon. You won’t be sorry if you do.
