    "On this latest album, the songwriters are on top of their game influenced by folk, psych, pop, jazz and beyond yet retaining a sonic framework that ties every tune together wonderfully, each song perfectly formed and a delight for the ears. These influences though are just that, the band has their own identity, they cannot sound any other way, this is Wolverton, beautiful, great conversationalist and the perfect date for a summer afternoon."

    --- Simon Lewis, Terrascope

    "contagious fun...mescaline in the pocket."

    --- James Killen, Houston Music Review

    "Approaching their songwriting with the carefree spirit of kids on a playground, the three core members (vocalist and keys player Kate Terrell, guitarist and singer Hills Snyder, and vocalist Caralyn Snyder) all take turns leading listeners through the weird and twisting experimental folk journey of Wizard Land."

    --- Chris Conde, San Antonio Current

    "Wizard Land is the latest album by eclectic Texas based band Wolverton. Their brand of folk rock has elements of chamber pop, and sneaking cabaret/noir vibrations, especially in the dramatic delivery of the dual vocals and kaleidoscopic lyrical imagery. A basic, central sound of piano, percussion and guitar is fleshed out here and there by strings, banjo, theremin and other production touches. Wolverton's musical influences seem to range wide, from roots rock and americana to broadway-style show tunes and classical flourishes."

    --- Josh Moss, The Modern Folk Music of America

lyrics

Louise

once Louise came to me in the street
quick and sort of bluesy that heartbeat
black hair and shoes the elegant kind
diaphanous footsteps keeping time

just like you the stars shine
into that once dark heart of mine
now together we’ll understand
I bid you the best my friend

once Bruce Lee came to me in a dream
kickin’ sort of beauty that heartbeat
black hair and shoes the grappling kind
flip of his fist intercepting mine

just like you the stars shine
into that once dark heart of mine
now together you’ll understand
not a fair weather friend I am

Louise
with your colored jeans
hanging in your bourgeois boudoir
Louise
with your braid down your back
your calico shirt
and your colored slacks

twice Bruce Lee came to me in a dream
kickin’ sorta beauty that heartbeat
black hair and shoes the grappling kind
jauntily skipping appearing fine

just like you the stars shine
into that once dark heart of mine
by candlelight erase the windows dear
it’s not what you think, the view from here
