WOOD CHICKENS: Skunk Ape: 7”

A skunk ape is also known as a “swampsquatch,” Florida Bigfoot, or Louisiana Bigfoot that smells badly. Even though the Wood Chickens are from Madison, Wis. and skunk apes are said to live in the Southeastern U.S., their EP opens with a song about a skunk ape on their property that they can’t get rid of. If energetic cowpunk and swamp creatures are your thing, check out this three-song 7” with southern influences. ­–Cynthia Pinedo (Kitschy Manitou, kitschymanitou.com)
