Taiga Woods is the new stoner-psychedelia-sludge-pop project of my long time friend, rock guitar god and stoner pop songwriting and riff making genius Erik "Scumbag" Skundberg, whom I have previously worked with in band projects such as Scumbag Travel Agency (and a crazy duo project called Blodøks, waaay back in high school). On this new album I had the honour of playing the drums on all 7 songs, while maestro Skundberg is playing all guitars and bass guitars, as well as the vocals.
When you live inside the studio most of the time like I do, it is sometimes easy to forget the sheer joy of just playing an instrument. I was actually a pretty good drummer once upon a time. And on every occasion I step behind the kit again, I find I should not give up being a drummer entirely, because playing the drums is so immensely fun! Besides, when Mr. Scumbag asks, it's very hard to say no, since his music is literally awesome.
The album is produced by Kai Christoffersen at Calmeyer Studio, and has been receiving great reviews in stoner rock mags on the web!
