Album Review: Thanks Anyway

Title:  Thanks Anyway (Amazon)
Artist:  Woodpecker (Official, Facebook, MySpace,)

Brooklyn’s Woodpecker started out as a bit of a joke with member’s playing bluegrass covers of punk and hip hop songs.  Since then the band has released two albums, Thanks Anyway being the latest.  The record is a fascinating mix of bluegrass, indie pop, and Americana played on (mostly) acoustic instruments—including banjo, accordion, glock, keys, stand-up bass, mandolin, electric bass, guitar, cello, and fiddle.  The mix of instruments creates an incredibly full sound that is sure to please fans of bluegrass, Americana, and indie pop/rock (at least those that can take a bit of country).
