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.
