The bee is the pollinator. The flower is so pretty. The butterfly came from a nasty coffin that was actually its beginning and not its end. What is the crazy but simple process of reproduction, growth, life? Ask your self that question and the only answer you’ll get, while watching this video, will sound like a comforting “hey yo” that buzzes and bounces around inside.

Woodsman: When the Morning Comes
When you have a really bad time, you get home too late and you feel sick, you get dumped or worse, you throw up, you have to spend time with Republicans… All of these things could make you wake up the next day and mutter to yourself, “Damn, Last Night Sucked.”
I don’t know exactly what happened to the Lawrence, Kansas band Baby Birds Don’t Drink Milk that inspired them to write a song called “Last Night Sucked.” Whatever it was, it seems like it doesn’t matter anymore because the band got a somewhat anthemic song out of it, and, perhaps, a record deal?
I’ve been jamming the track for months now, but just a couple of days ago I heard that the Fire Talk label, headed up by Trevor from Woodsman (yeah, DENVER), is putting out a BBDDM LP, “Skeletor and Me.” Clearly the song (and their others) turned some people on. You can pick it up here. The band will be around for CMJ. See them.
Baby Birds Don’t Drink Milk: Last Night Sucked
This just in from Colorado space control stars Woodsman…
First: a story.
I tripped over a power cable at the UP Ranch in Texas (yes, everything happened there.) The person who caught my arm and said “Hey that wasn’t my fault,” was a member of Woodsman. He had long blond hair and a gentle voice. We talked for awhile… but I can’t remember what about. Probably…. music?
Two days later Woodsman played the Mexican Summer/Gorilla Vs. Bear Showcase. They were loud and so intensely inspired, I was literally shocked. “This was the gentle voiced gentleman who caught me before I fell?,” I thought to myself. Hmmmm.
Woodsman is from Denver, Colorado. The blonde haired man told me that Denver gets more days of sunshine than any other place in the U.S., that I remember. We decided that was likely because of the city’s elevation. Perhaps this is why the blonde haired stoner boy looked like a surfer, but made music that sounded like it came from deep in the middle of the Earth. Colorado is landlocked.
Woodsman has an album coming out on Lefse on June 1.
“When the Morning Comes” is a sample from that album to get you ready. No, this is not a take on the jolly Grateful Dead song with a similar name. It couldn’t be farther from that song sonically. Mystically, they could be cousins.
Beautiful Woodsman videos….
Check them out on tour. Highly suggested. Playing June 18 somewhere in NYC, and June 19 at 87 Guernsey St., which is the Mexican Summer store.
