THE LEGEND OF THE ACTUAL WOLF: There are outlaws, and there are outlaws. Some practice the pose and cultivate the image, though seldom dirty their soft, bourgeois hands with anything actually outside the law. When they do, it is often despicable, irresponsible or just plain mundane. The Actual Wolf (aka Eric Pollard), however, is a real outlaw and has pled guilty to it. Between the bust and before the trial AW recorded a pair of EPs, each showing ‘another side of the Wolf’.
Robert Skoro’s Destroyers & Makers EP proves limitless digital recording can pay off. Released a decade after the instrumentally sumptuous, erudite rock project commenced, the six songs echo a time when the road was Minneapolis-based Skoro’s closest companion. It boasts couplets you’ll think about for hours, and was recorded in a manner that could never be exactly replicated.
