Review

GIRL UPSTAIRS...the debut concept album by newcomers to the Austin music scene, LONG WOODSON, is a true testament to Texas songwriting and storytelling. Co-creators, Gunter Woodson and Matt Long have found obvious influence from bands like The Stones and Wilco, but have conspired to come up with a totally original sound. The album spins on the different perspectives of a love triangle with standout tracks like, Sweetly Naïve, The Game, and Hey Lady. While poppy, full of sweet harmonies and melodic hooks, it maintains it s musical grit with Dave Duce’s blues guitar rifts, Rick Coach Davis’ Texas-style harp and a serious lyrical bite. One listen and you ll find GIRL UPSTAIRS running through your head for days to come. --Angie Oliver - Austin, Texas

In today's musical landscape of pop gimmicks and catchy hooks, Long-Woodson flips the script in Girl Upstairs. Hanging their hat on strong, creative song-writing and crisp instrumentals, interspersed with back-allley grittiness and pistolero guitar rifts, Long-Woodson comes out swinging in their debut album. Reverting back to the adage that simplicity is the highest level of sophistication, Austin's newest musical duo hits this one outa-the-park. ---Branton Box, CEO WONDER MUSIC

Product Description

Girl Upstairs is a concept album that chronicles the lives of three misfits - a stalker, a stripper, and a semi-successful musician and how their lives are intertwined in an unlikely love triangle. Gus is hopelessly in love with a stripper, Brit, who lives upstairs from him in their small-town Texas apartment complex. The irony of their living situation is that Brit doesn t even know Gus’ name. For her part, Brit is excessively devoted to her musician boyfriend, Dutch, who rewards her devotion by refusing to say the words I love you. Gus, the protagonist of the story, hangs on to his sanity by a thread as he is confronted by the reality of the sounds of Dutch making love to Brit in the room above him at night. But the delusional, protective part of Gus’ brain is convinced that Brit’s love can and will always be solely reserved for him. Each song on the album was written from the point of view of one of the three characters, as demonstrated by the three sets of handwriting on the insert booklet. The cartoonish style of the album artwork was intended to represent the lack of lucidity of Gus’ mental state, as well as to create a whimsical feel of innocence in contrast to what is in reality a darkly-themed album.
