Label: Woodpile Records
Bio: You can almost say the band was an accident and for that reason was the only thing that could have happened — though in many ways Wolverton was already forming via friendships by the time they played their first gig in an over-sized bathroom on the top floor of a hotel in downtown San Antonio.

“The underlying agitation is reflected in discordant instrumentation which bleeds across the room like blood splatter, Wolverton then impose constructs of interpretation which veer between abhorrence of the scene and awe at the beauty of the patterns and it is their ability to draw the two opposites into convergence, which gives the material its beauty. The quartet are uncompromising in their style which inevitably draws, by the very genre, but much scorn of the like of their kin – Dylan, Baez, Guthrie et al, yet to ignore the message for its conveyance, is to miss prescience and to my mind a grave error. Lyric ever lays baleful eye, whilst the vocal delivery transposes, akin the instrumentation, betwixt menace and glorification giving the compositions an ebb and flow of texture which keeps the ears attenuated. Growing in experience and confidence over their four years of journey, Wolverton have the potential to mark themselves out territory, which will be long lingering.”
