“Robin Woywitka’s How Many Ways, from his second album, The Impossible Address, made me smile the very first time I heard it….like Bradbury’s characters, Robin’s are entirely and frailly human.” - The Finch & Pea

"Local CD Releases: Woywitka and Wood"

When he’s not digging for arrowheads and stone tools in northern Alberta, archeologist/rocker Robin Woywitka is writing retro-flavoured songs about miners, trains, and birthdays. His third album, recorded in Edmonton and Mississippi, often sounds like Lou Reed fronting The Cars if they were a roots-rock band from the ‘60s." - Edmonton Journal

Bio

Robin Woywitka's experience as a professional archaeologist has provided him with many opportunities to view the underbelly of human history - great fodder for roots 'n' roll songs. His interest in change through also frames his latest compositions. By blending older blues and country forms with new rock and roll styling, Robin guides you on a brief visit to The Impossible Address, his second album.

Most of the album was recorded in two days at Delta Recording Service in Como, Mississippi, United States with producer Jimbo Mathus and engineer Justin Showah. Although Robin expected to finish a few songs during this session, he adapted quickly to Mr. Mathus’ frenetic pace and came out with nearly three quarters of the record. These songs were captured in the moment, with the rhythm and lead vocal tracks performed absolutely live. The results are warm in tone and record the inexplicable excitement that Mr. Mathus infuses in all of his recordings. The remainder of the album was recorded in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada Rhythm tracks were once again recorded live, this time with jumpy, lock-tight rhythms. The songs from this session are clearer and a little more intricate, with a pinch of surrealism thrown in for flavour.

The mixing of Mr. Mathus’ and Mr. Showah’s southern style with Robin’s Canadian cut raises some ghosts of The Band. However, the record also bears a peculiar pop rock shine reminiscent of R.E.M or Sloan, and will appeal to appreciators of both raw roots music and more measured modern folk rock.
