Woods

Add Date: May 11


Artist: Woods


Album: At Echo Lake


Label: Woodsist


Genre: Folk-Rock/Psych


Comments: Awesome lo-fi, loose, psych-influenced folk-rock from indie darlings Woods, whose Songs of Shame was well-regarded of one of last year's fabulous records. Totally fuzzy and handmade sounding (which is the point, made successfully), the record is cohesive without having individual tracks blend together. The songs are well-crafted--the distortion works with the harmonies, and the sound is vintage-influenced without being dated, and overall, the music is delightfuly quirky without being inaccessible. Try trakcs 1, 2, 3, and 6.
