Wolf People: Cotton Strands
Wolf People are an English psychedelic rock band based in London, Bedford and North Yorkshire. They formed in 2006 around the release of a very limited CD EP on Sea Records as part of the Lifeboat Series. They then released three 7” singles on Battered Ornaments Records, they quickly sold out and are now becoming quite sought after. In fact, the 7″ vinyl “Cotton Strands” is taken from is completely out of print, so for now the digital version will have to suffice.
The band have been embraced by the psych community receiving great praise in Shindig magazine and Terrascope.com amongst others. Their influences include Captain Beefheart, Can, Pentangle, Dungen, Amon Duul II. Wolf People’s music is largely blues rock based but incorporates elements of folk, jazz, kraut, and country.
You can find several more of the band’s tracks on their Soundcloud page.[audio:http://insomniaradio.net/audio/dailydose/irdd-wolfpeople-cottonstrands.mp3]
