The Woodpeckers

Simpler Times

This very cool band from Markham, Ontario was once a 3-piece with electronic drums who lost a battle of the bands to a former band of Ed Robertson (who is now in Barenaked Ladies; those of you who didn't know that must now sing 5 choruses of "If I Had $1,000,000" as your penance). Their sound is kinda hard to pin down to a genre, which is a good thing. It's a rare breed of enjoyable electric rock, without striving for a mosh factor. There's a few not-so-electric songs, a few fairly rockin' tracks, and a cover of Soft Cell's "Tainted Love", which is less moshable, but snarlier than Change of Heart's version. And with song lengths ranging from 1:24 to 3:34, this is not an attempt at an epic
