Featured Release This Week From Woods

May 29, 2016

City Sun Eater In The River Of Light is the ninth album from the Brooklyn-based band Woods.  They formed in 2005, so that's nearly an album a year.  Songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Jeremy Earl leads the band, and also runs Woods' label, Woodsist Records.  Woods is a band that have made their name in the realm of lo-fi psych folk (or freak folk, if you prefer).  Their new album is only the second to be recorded in a proper studio.  As described by their record label, it's "a dense record of rippling guitar and lush horns...they're dabbling in zonked out Ethiopian jazz...City Sun Eater In The River Of Light is concise, powerful, anxious- barreling headlong into an uncertain, constantly shifting new world."
