Richie Woods Wow cool - AC32
We figure him sleepy under a blanket of dust and broken glass. Yet, with this first album, “Wow Cool”, RICHIE WOOD Stakes you on a rough trip for lonely souls. Unknown direction, stray dogs in the rear-view mirror.
A drunkenness romance, Buffalo’ 66’s VHS’ way, where we hear whispering “I wanna make love in this club cause I’m dumb and I miss you”. Richie plays with time, nostalgia and offers us a first brilliant and surrealist album where he enjoys tearing the fragile skin of daily to metamorphose it into small quasi radiant hymns (the lover “Wendy” or the ironic “Money is Everythign”. As if, at dawn, the scum of sadness at the corner of your mouth turned into a vaguely amused smile.
