With inspiration ranging from a tin roof shack in the jungle to David Lynch, The Wood Brothers' "Live, Volume 2: Nail & Tooth," the second installment of their live set, was released August 28 on Southern Ground Artists. Known for slinging "shovelfuls of twang, funk, humor, and soul" (M Magazine) the brothers "use old school tendencies to create a soulful sound" (Relix) on the follow-up to "Live, Volume 1: Sky High."
Captured in front of sold-out crowds over the course of a 20-date U.S. tour, the eight-song album features revamped songs from previous albums, including 'Spirit,' the aforementioned original about finding inspiration written in a shack on a volcanic island, and the lascivious crowd-pleaser 'Shoofly Pie.' The band rounds out the set with covers of some of their biggest influences, including Sister Rosetta Tharpe's 'Up Above My Head' ("her amazing voice and guitar playing are a big inspiration") and 'Get Out My Life Woman' by Allen Toussaint, whom Chris and Oliver call "one of our songwriting heroes."
