Wonderful Wooden Reasons is a fanzine dedicated to experimental and non-commercial music of all forms. The very fact that it's name has been shamelessly stolen from the song Meadow Meal by Faust should give you some idea of where it's allegiances lie.
We are interested in all forms of experimental and drone music. Also noise, ambient, psychedelia, extreme metal, industrial, jazz, post rock, I listen to everything I'm sent. I only have one rule. If I don't like it I won't review it. If there are things about it I liked I'll include it, I won't gloss over those things that I don't, but, just cause I don't like it doesn't mean it's crap so I don't rubbish anything.
All physical formats are welcome for review but please send the finished article, including the sleeve, inserts, etc, so I can give a full review. I'm also always on the lookout for things to read and watch. However, I rarely have time to download mp3s and I don't open attachments. I like things I can hold and appreciate. Please don't ask me to review your digital release. it's enough work keeping up with the physical ones without adding digital releases also so it will be a blanket refusal - sorry.
Finally, please be aware that Wonderful Wooden Reasons is entirely the work of one person - me, Ian - and I have a day job (lecturing) that keeps me pretty busy in the evenings also (grading papers and lesson prep) and as such things rarely get reviewed as quickly as anyone would like. I do listen to everything that gets submitted and as soon as I get the chance I try and say something nice about them but you need to know that sometimes you'll have to wait a little while.
