Introducing: One Wolf

I don’t know much about One Wolf at this point, other than that it is the songwriting vehicle of a Texan named Daniel Markham. After linking to the new song from Deer Tick yesterday the band’s promo people quickly sent along this one from their sophomore album, One Wolf II: Secret of the Wolf. Turns out they are playing some shows with DT this week and thought I might want to share some music with y‘all. And I do. “Backyard” is somewhat similar to Deer Tick, not because it shares the jangly garage-folk sound of “Twenty Miles”, but because its hints of melodic folk-rock are mixed with an almost dirty/grungy guitar sound - similar to what Deer Tick go for on occasion when they are actually getting away from what they do best. As far as One Wolf goes though, they pull this sound off with aplomb.
