The second album is almost finished. In 2016, a new song will be released online every month, 12 songs - 12 months, leading up to the album release at the end of 2016.
Chop Wood started as a solo project by former Coparck frontman Odilo Girod. His guitarless debut album is a mix of electronic and acoustic songs written mostly at night due to his sleeplessnes and insomnia. A diverse batch of atmospheres sparked with sweet caustic electricity, multi layered vocals and insomniatic lyrics.
A debut album was recorded in Berlin in 2008 as part of the in a cabin with project. You can download the whole album for free at this Dropbox link, support us by buying it via iTunes or buy the deluxe cd sleeve at live concerts.
In 2009 Chop Wood played 50 live shows at the travelling festival ‘DE PARADE’, did a gig in Moscow, supported Jamie Lidell and hit venues like the Paradiso and the Melkweg in Amsterdam.
2010 brought a Canadian Tour in May, playing for 10 days at the Dutch OEROL festival, performing in China, the recordings for a new album and some more special gigs in strange foreign countries.
Things are expanding and moving. Last year we went into the woods for 8 days of new recordings. More musicians have joined Chop Wood. We're now with five. The new album will be released in 2016.
