Ever since hearing their 2nd album If I Don't Come Home You'll Know I'm Gone back in August, I haven't been able to stop raving about The Wooden Sky to friends, family, or anyone willing to listen. I've described the album before as a cross between The National's, 'Boxer' and Whiskeytown's, 'Stangers Almanac', mixing an epic quality of lush instrumentation and subtleness, with an alt-country and Americana down home feel. It's not too late to get familiar with the band as they're in town this weeknd for two shows, starting tonight at Piano's (they go on at 8) and Sat. night at Union Hall in Brooklyn.
