"Yankee Reality. What does it mean? Does it portend that there is some unique, other plain of existence for northerners and / or city folk? Something perhaps alien to, well, everybody else? Virginia cum citizen of London / rambling man Keith Wood knows all about it. Several years ago, he relocated to the city of crumpets and tea, where he, among other things, secured a gig playing guitar for notoriously intense death folk legends Current 93. In the midst of all this excitement, he has managed to write and record a brand new Hush Arbors album, his second for Ecstatic Peace!, and it's his finest to date. With a full band in tow - multi instrumentalist Leon Dufficy, bassist Jason Ajemian, and drummer Ryan Sawyer - and none other than J Mascis in the producer's chair, Yankee Reality continues Wood's winning streak while introducing an embarrassment of riches in the way of surprises and curveballs along the way."-James Jackson Toth
