Wandering Oak brings:

Scott Yoder (USA Greenway Records/ Burger Records)
Scott Matthew Yoder’s teen years and young adulthood were pent in the US underground in garage pop band The Pharmacy, touring with the likes of Kimya Dawson and JAPANTHER, before a series of solo cassette releases paved the way for the critical acclaim with his first LP “Looking Back IN Blue” In 2016.

Emerging as a transgressive troubadour strddling the common vibes of folk, glam & powerpo, he now fronts a theatric-electric band of glammy freaks saturated in the lurid lineage of Iggy Pop, David Bowie and the New York Dolls. Second LP “A Fool Aloof” sees Scott armed with a high-watermark canon of baroque-textered songs, and Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra… or the lovechild of their musical union, road tripping into the night beyond a blue America.

“Lyrically impressive songs & melodies drive this album” – Surviving the Golden Age


* dog years *
A winsome blend of Big star and Daniel Johnston as fed through a C86 filter, consistently setting a high benchmark of outside pop songwriting in this parish.

* Big Pink Yacht *
We only got to do one show with El Cid before they split, which sucks.
Happily though, Big Pink Yacht are here to continue the good work, breathing new life into Gram;s dream of Cosmic American Music with folk elements introduced to the recipe.
