Its woods doing what woods does. Continuous cooking grooves, played by some of the best musicians in the indie game. 15 years down and I'm still tuned in. Hope I can see these guys live again in 2021.

Love the album art and the video animations, curiosity of John Andrews (check out his band too).

Laid-back, mellow newest material from indie rock outfit Woods finds them at their most hopeful and wistful with their trademark woozy melodies and thoughtful lyricism. with hints of melancholy. They continue to hit their stride with their sound that captures the end of summer, especially on the closing track, Weekend Wind that bookends the record very well.

Woods emerge for the first time in 3 years with a full length album. And honestly, it’s a sort of return to form. Yes, it’s not as rustic, low-fi or freaky as anything they did years ago. But it’s full of colorful jams and some of the band’s more emotional material, perfect for these oddball times we live in.

Give A Listen To: “Next to You and the Sea”, “Before They Pass By”, “Can’t Get Out”, “Strange to Explain”, ... read more

Better than their last album. It's got some great moments and some dull ones too.
