One of our main obsessions in the world of electro-dance madness is wrapped up in the devilish duo known as Woodhands. We found out about them back in ’08 and were stoked to see them live for the first time at SXSW in ’09. These two dudes are the epedemy of nerdy-genius musicians, and it shows in their live performance and three awesome albums. We had the chance to sit down and talk smack with Dan and Paul last year, where we shared ridiculous and awkward stories including Merch dancing so hard at their first show she puked afterwards (no liquid courage involved).
BC: They were definitely one of the most fun bands we’ve interviewed, not to mention how insane their live performances are.
Merch: Our chat with them went on way too awkwardly long, and I loved it. I also enjoyed Paul playing drums in his socks.
BC: It was strange that they were on tour with Lotus. Watching all of those stoned hippies try to figure out their music was classic. They got them all dancing, though, so mission accomplished.
Merch: I think what I love about their music is that it’s so energy infused that you can’t help but lose control.
BC: Exactly, it’s like Electric Six meets Young Love. Mmmm electro-goodness.
So here’s to our boys of Woodhands, and the first track that got us hooked:
