First impressions go a long way and in this case they had me right at the start. The band has a sound that reminds me of the melodic punk coming out of the D.C. area during its heyday in the 1980s. I did some online research on Wooden Planes and couldn’t find a listing for their hometown, but I did find a few fliers that had the band playing recent shows at clubs in the Chicago area so I’m assuming they are a Midwest-based outfit. Maybe that would explain why I’m hearing a Naked Raygun and Pegboy influence in their songs? I highly recommend checking out this release for a refreshing sound of days gone by.
