Artist: ART MUSEUMS
Title: Rough Frame
Format: CD
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Cult new wave band THE ART MUSEUMS tell sordid tales of artists, lovers, and poseurs. Bay Area psych burnouts JOSH ALPER and GLENN DONALDSON converged in San Francisco in the summer of 09 to record Anglophile jams on a Tascam 388 tape machine (state of the art home-recording circa 85). Rough Frame is their debut LP for the Woodsist label. They would make a hi-fi studio record if they had the money, but reviewers would probably still say it was lo-fi. The Art Museums are into: art, poetry, Whaam! Records, and films about Mods. The Art Museums are not into: flared trousers, drip coffee, or dirty sneakers." - Woodsist.

Artist: BLANK DOGS
Title: The Fields
Format: CD
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"BlankDogs are actually singular: Its the insanely prolific one-man Brooklyn-based band of Mr. Blank Dog. We dont know too much about the biography of the guy behind the bedroom new-wave pop/punk and hes usually covering his face with masks or bedspreads, but thats fine. The aura of anonymity allows you to focus on the sounds -- and, really, he might be releasing a ton of things, but theres definitely a higher jam to crap ratio. Its like Joy Division vocal lines with the Cures synth and guitar melodies filtered through ancient submerged keyboards and eroded recording equipment. And that voice? All the feedback in the world cant hide his knack for melody. Blank Dogs have been making plenty of rumbles in the noisier and more secretive outposts of the underground (half his discographys sold out), but Troubleman Unlimiteds just repressed his very recommended full-length On Two Sides (on yellow vinyl in an edition of 500) and In The Reds releasing a 20-song double LP (or single CD) Under And Under in January. Its all new material. Hes also playing his first shows this month in NYC, so if you want to take a peek, you can. All this to say: Seems like BlankDogs is on his way out of the basement."-stereogum.

Artist: CHRISTIAN FAMILY UNDERGROUND
Title: For the Depth of Your Union⿦
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Summer 06 Family Underground (DK) recorded with Dave Nuss of NNCK at Black Dirt Studios in the woods of upstate NY. The yield was as characteristically unhinged as one might expect: sweeping electronic sounds backed with wood and bone percussion spirit-conjure. However also harvested was some new and especially tasty crop: sung and spoken song, electric guitar/conga "rock," and an odd ghostly sheen coating the entire proceeding. Nuss comments on the session: "I remember when we were recording, momentarily leaving the studio and going out into the night and feeling it thicken like a partition separating us from this intense state of clear consciousness we had in the recording, which was like⿦ humankinds natural state. And then thinking about Jesper from FU, an adopted Vietnamese living in DK, and how much he resembles Michael Jackson, and realizing that across continents no man can be divided from himself. We had to make this music to provide for us some fantasy of fulfillment that would carry us through the weekend like rejuvenated suns born again climbing to heaven, after being washed in the deepest bluest sea⿦."

Artist: CRYSTAL STILTS
Title: s/t
Format: CDEP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Crystal Stilts started in Brooklyn in 2003 as Brad Hargett and JB Townsend. Not really trying to be a "band" they recorded and self-released their single "Shattered Shine" on their Feathery Tongue label in 04 with friend Sean Mafucci (producer of Gang Gang Dance, Psychic Ills, Kid Congo Powers etc.) With no shortage of lazy Jesus and Mary Chain and Factory records comparisons, (more like VU, Felt, and Blue Orchids) in 2005-06 they continued to play in New York with bands such as the Long Blondes, 1990s and The Monochrome Set and recorded a 4 song ep. Kyle Forrester (Ladybug Transistor etc. etc.) joined them at gigs playing organ as well. After a brief hiatus to record there back catalogue for upcoming LP (Slumberland) they adopted Andy Adler (who played bass on Eric Copeland of Black Dice fuzzpop outfit Ninjas) to rock the bass. After opening for the Clean in November, Frankie Rose (Vivian Girls) waltzed into their life to play the stand-up drums and complete the equation. CD compiles their 12" ep and the "Shattered Shine" 7inch."- Woodsist

Artist: DOOZER, THE
Title: Keep It Together
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Keep It Together is the fourth full-length album from the Fenlands shadow puppet master THE DOOZER. Relocating to a village hall, little-theatre-style, he sets the task with a cast of eleven players dipping in and out, old Mrs. Mallows holding the keys. Previous albums are primarily lonesome affairs, so this group activity holds sway on the albums all-enveloping sound. Chords are the name of the game, and its certainly got them! You hear guitars, bass, piano and drums; slipping in to lift those harmonies, a string quartet and horns.... Is that a tuba from the Salvation Army, you say? Yeah it is, and salvation is at hand. Just let it come down from the "Aluminum Dome." Perhaps you know what the weathers like here, but if you dont, take some advice from "Fen Drayton." Or, if youre in doubt about what flowers to get your girl, then check out "Fold Up Chair." Are you undecided on your God? Thats "Oh Unbelievers!" But none of its good advice, its just a crack at the seam. Limited to 500 copies." -Woodsist

Artist: EAT SKULL
Title: III
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"While you were out kicking an empty Sparks cup around SXSW, world class musical talents EAT SKULL were busy creating their third opus, entitled III, on a fever train between states, cities, community colleges and jails. Nearly four days or four years in the making (depending on who you ask), III is a more psychedelic and perfectly circular outing then their previous classics of paranoid ecstasy Wild and Inside and Sick to Death.  Somewhere in between the subatomic joy of Primal Screams "Keep Your Dreams" and the desperate loneliness of Same Place the Fly Got Smashed-era Guided By Voices lies the weird and wonderful world of III. Throw a dash of Iron Maidens Wasted Years in the cauldron, stir and dip a cigarette in it to smoke. This is music to drink to, die to, fall in love to and quit your job to. Drive to Alaska. Fuck it. Includes free digital download coupon." -Woodsist.

Artist: FRESH & ONLYS
Title: Grey-Eyed Girls
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"When Tim Cohen told Shayde Sartin he was writing a song called Be My Hooker, the Fresh & Onlys bassist looked at the singer/guitarist and said, Theres no way were gonna have a song with that title, dude, explains Sartin. But sure enough, he laid a riff down and I was like, Jesus christ, I cant believe you pulled something meaningful out of such a stupid line. Welcome to the push/pull dynamic thats fueled the Fresh & Onlys steady stream of releases over the past year, including last springs self-titled LP (Castle Face) and Grey-Eyed Girls (Woodsist). And to think it all started the old-fashioned way -- with Sartin and Cohen simply hanging out after work, playing their favorite punk (Buzzcocks, The Mekons) and classic rock (Country Joe and the Fish, cued up alongside slabs of psych from the groups homebase, San Francisco) records alongside a growing collection of empty beer cans. I cant really explain what happened or why, says Sartin. I guess we listened to records until we were on the same page, and from that point on, we never stopped recording. As simple as all of that sounds, the duo first bought a tape machine five years ago. When that failed to produce any concrete cuts, Cohen focused on his previous avant-pop band, Black Fiction, and Sartin split his time between session and live work for such bands as the Skygreen Leopards, Papercuts and Citay. Not to mention his close friend Kelley Stoltz, who ended up releasing the first Fresh & Onlys 7" (the limited Imaginary Friends EP) in early 2008. With so much music hitting shops in such a short time (Sartin says the band already has boxes of backlogged tapes), you might think the Fresh & Onlys camp have a problem with quality control. Quite the contrary; Sartin and Cohen are very careful about what they release. And while the duo writes and records the bands songs, the arrangements are usually fleshed out with guitarist Wymond Miles, drummer Kyle Gibson, and backup singer Heidi Alexander. If we take a song into the studio or a live setting and it doesnt have wings, says Sartin, Then we just ditch it and keep the charming demo version. The final mix of Grey-Eyed Girls sounds like a natural bridge between the raucous garage rock of the groups debut and the full-on studio record they plan on wrapping for In the Red later this year. That goes for the galloping grooves of Happy To Be Living, the shadowy post-punk of Invisible Forces, and the firework finale freak-outs that drive The Delusion of Man. Not to mention a stack of hook-slinging tracks that nix any shitgaze assumptions you may have. Were not trying to hide melodies or do the blown-out thing, says Sartin. A lot of those bands are great, but I dont want to ever cater to whats popular. Its not that Im being reactionary; were just trying to make recordings that are as rich and ear-friendly as possible. Its working." - Woodsist.

"All completely new songs.. This album is pure naive headphone acid pop to drive to, at least thats what was going through our heads." -- Ganglians. "Sacramentos Ganglians want an island somewhere where they can soak in the sun and prowl the canopy by night. Its not often that they do get out, but they can get down for that. Recording sometimes as one, sometimes as four, its a real game to figure out where the entity comes from and where its going. First and foremost its about uncertain pleasures. Its a bit like choose your own adventure. Theres codeine balladry; a slightly upsetting tempo that is quickly flushed into an aural high, the next moment youre in the toy strewn abyss of the bedroom and then out to the tribal caves of the natives. The planets align and the sun beats down, palms tingling, and you are on the island theyve built, the scenery constantly shifting for a better view, of you. 11 tracks in just under 50 min." -Woodsist

Artist: GOLDEN CALVES
Title: Collection: Money Band + Century Band
Format: Double LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Collection gathers pre-WOODEN WAND AND THE VANISHING VOICE material from JAMES JACKSON TOTHs GOLDEN CALVES project. "It was really all about The Godz, Jandek, The Shadow Ring, Strapping Fieldhands, Swell Maps and Tower Recordings. Beyond these, I had only heard the classic and most available free jazz, krautrock and noise albums. I was a long way from, say, the second Comus album or Charles Gayle. But this music changed my life. It was a record store owner named Eric McCarthy and a man who needs no introduction to anyone reading these notes, Matt Valentine, who taught me that there was a world beyond Dischord, Vermiform and Ebullition. I went to college, met hip people, and got a job at both the local record store and the college radio station. I was taking drugs. I bought a four track and began emulating my heroes. I called the project Golden Calves. I was eighteen years old.... In hindsight, I like to think that the noise scene liked us and responded so positively to us because, in our own naive way, we were subverting a very rigid paradigm. Touring with noise bands and moving in experimental circles but playing proper songs is what made us weird. It was an exciting, unforgettable time. These are not perfect records. Perhaps worse than so-called naive art is only-marginally-informed art and thats what this is. I should have let my talents marinate for a while before rushing out records that now sound to me like thinly-veiled love letters to Siltbreeze. But fuck it, man. I was hopelessly arrogant then and remain so today. Why else would I greenlight this fucking thing?"-James Jackson Toth, Lexington, KY, Summer 2010.

Artist: HUNTER, JANA
Title: Carrion
Format: One Sided LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Half of the six songs on Jana Hunters Carrion are unreleased hangers-on from the writing sessions that produced her most recent full-length, Theres No Home, while the other half are alternate renditions of works that appeared on that release. But this is no mere grab bag of remnants; its a real tight product, all around. "Paint A Babe" is a throw-back to Hunters earlier material, written and recorded simultaneously on a borrowed four-track recorder. A real sad, longing song. "A Goblin, A Goblin" took a little more time to create: this strong, sturdy number, replete with violins and creepy harmony, tells the tale of an indignant outcast. "You Will Take It and Like It," turns one central, pretty and proud guitar part over and over and over, with others mirroring it, leeching from it, grabbing on like little parasitic danglers. The original version of "Theres No Home" is here, the track that spawned an entire record title, followed by "Sleep" (titled, as it was originally, "Ooh Uuh"), from the recording that ended up on a lullaby compilation. Concluding Carrion is an acoustic re-presentation of the country-minded "Oracle," stripped down to one guitar, one melody, and one harmony, as it was originally conceived in its creation as homage. CD on Gnomonsong" - Woodsist.

"Portugals greatest export (besides cork and textiles) continues its dusky, creeping bleed of six-limbed psychedelic windmilling. Loosers have always excelled at ripping strange spatial curvatures out of drums, electronics, and exotic moods, and Logic On Its Head serves up two more classic black platters of sidelight ritualism. The A drapes incense and chimes atop an old copper bowl of ringing tones and tentacle percussion fusion that slow-burns a sweet smoke you never wanna exhale. Dont. The B, Daeh Sti No Cigol, is even more perverse, as backwards as its title and dusty as a mosque. Sudden gestures flutter in the dusk and the sky turns purple. Really commanding and liberated in a way few improv outfits achieve so easily. Impending double LPs on Eclipse and Qbico should only escalate their visionary aura."- Britt/NNF.

Artist: MAGIC LANTERN
Title: Magic Lantern
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Magic Lantern came into being at the mid-point of the decade, sparked into existence by a simultaneous period of musical discovery for Philip French, William Giacchi, and Cameron Stallones. Inspired by the psychedelic approach to musical tone and structure in various eras and genres of rock (not at all excluding Germany and Japan in the 70s), the three realized they ought to make use of the new creative tools theyd stumbled upon, and began jamming the summer away in twin poles of Long Beach and Whittier, CA. Over the course of a year, they recorded every jam and compiled a full-lengths worth of home-studio demos which later became their self-released CD-R. At the same time, each member was developing solo and side projects to channel parallel universes of sound. A year after their first jam together, Magic Lantern decided to make the leap to playing live and recruited good friends and like-minded musicians Chip Knechtel and Gavin Fort to be their marathon rhythm section. The jams from their CD-R were used as the blueprints for the band to develop a raw, stripped-down sound that emphasized hypnotic rhythms and improvised guitar duels. After being invited to play at the Tee Pee Records showcase Manifest Destiny in August of 07, th Lantern kept up a steady diet of shows in L.A. and Long Beach for the next year, earning a local following and two highly limited tapes on Not Not Fun Records. Through the spring of 08, they began writing new material as a band and developing the new songs live. In the summer, they recorded these jams with sound wizard Bobb Bruno, which led to the Not Not Fun LP High Beams that September. At this point, the band had fully emerged from transition into a shared creative vision of five musicians, each possessing a singular voice, all united in the common goal to engage both mind and body through good vibrations." -Woodsist.

The familiar tunes which have become staples in their set shine with an unheard intensity with killer solos and sonic excursions into the unknown, and then there is the deep of their singular environments, their space which manages to showcase the pastoral freakouts and cosmic raga forms so singular to this unique band. Home Comfort distills the gems of their live shows onto sweet wax. For those familiar with MATT and ERIKAs cottage label Heroine Celestial Agriculture, known to the heads as Heroine, this LP reads like a best of curated by the you are there Swingin Pig and the results are a stunning cross section of their duo exchange, funky trio with WOODS JEREMY EARL and big band exploratory stomp with DOC DUNN, MUSKOX, and WILLIE LANE of the GOLDEN ROAD.  Here is the true sound of MV & EE with the songs, the extended jams and the feeling.

"The album offers fourteen discretely memorable songs in the bands growing idiom—neurotic power-pop antics and jangly, shambolic post-punk—and follows a string of acclaimed records that began with their debut single in 2007, I Dont Wanna (Smoke Marijuana), which jumpstarted San Francisco cult-DIY label Make a Mess Records (subsequent home of similar debut records by Grass Widow, Brilliant Colors, White Fence and more), and was followed by a beloved, albeit short, seventeen-minute self-titled LP and the True to Life single, both on NYCs Whats Your Rupture? label." -Woodsist

"During a show with hardcore punks Hatefuck, DeBroux and company traveled to Winona, Minnesota. After a five-hour drive to the town, wasted locals, angry punks and gnarled three-legged dogs greeted them by leading them into a commandeered park. Inside the park, DeBroux found "the ultimate punk rock experience" with townies huffing rubber glue and mohawk-brandishing kids starting fights with crusties. The show ended and the locals gave the band three dollars for their troubles. A few kids asked DeBroux and company to chip in the three dollars on a keg. Soon, the crowd dispersed and left the band with no money or place to stay. The band wound up sleeping on an island between Minnesota and Wisconsin and breaking up soon thereafter. He wrote the first Pink Reason song, "Winona," about this experience." - Steve Kobak from Blastitude #25. Second press on red vinyl.

No Age has become the new Brittany Spears, Wavves crashed in outta nowhere like a mid-nineties major label grunge signing, and cute and sweet Vivian Girls are playing on the speakers in Target stores nationwide. What does this have to do with the new Psychedelic Horseshit EP? Well, nothing really, except that if you expect to hear that tired and true lo-fi sound, that is now so en vouge, you might be a little disappointed cause these boys have cleaned up a little bit, and from the sound of things this might only be the beginning. "I only listen to OK Computer and Cranes. The Fall sucks, DIY sucks, we suck, you suck." said Matt Horseshit in a recent interview. "Why should anyone listen to you then?" replied the reporter. "Because were FUN, duh." And even though you wanna hate em, you gotta admit, they kinda are fun. Matt is a dick, of course, and Rich is hilariously clueless mostly, and by all means most of the stuff on this SHITGAZE ANTHEMS EP shouldnt work, whether it be the white-boy dub section, the cliche acoustic ballad with backwards guitar, the blatant Dylan rips, or the overall amateur playing, but for some reason these elements that usually reek of pretention and failure actually endear you to the band and their songs. Yes, theyre called Psychedelic Horseshit. Yes, they do suck, but Ill be damned if they arent one of my favorite bands in the world, and theyre only getting better, but if I tried to tell you why itd only make em sound worse. So it goes..." - Woodsist.

Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Resident guitarist / noise-smith MIKE POLIZZE of Philly jam-punks BIRDS OF MAYA takes another one-off vacation with PURLING HISS. Public Service Announcement take a more song-oriented approach than Polizzes self-titled debut LP (Permanent Records) and its follow-up, Hissteria (Richie Records). With the treble down and the tape-heads bleeding, the LP is a montage of flange-covered tunes, in-the-red and submerged below sea level. "... reminds me of some of my other favorite mystery rock albums, like High Speed and the Afflicted Mans Get Stoned Ezy, or any Les Rallizes Denudes or Vermonster records-not necessarily in style or attack, but certainly in spirit. This is full-on destroyer guitar rock, with a palpable sense of nothing to lose and everything to prove. To me, it sounds like a serious, sincere statement-and you dont hear that every day."-Ripley Johnson (Moon Duo, Wooden Shjips).

"Real Estate waft in on vibes of hazy summers past. The New Jersey quartet of Martin Courtney IV, Matthew Mondanile III, Etienne Pierre Duguay and Alex Bleeker cut the sleeves short and the pop smooth to shade you from the midday heat. Every song works its way to that part of your consciousness that reveled in the fleeting waves of freedom that eked in once classes broke and the sun lingered a little longer over suburban roofs. And with three quarters of the band holding down Garden State roots its no surprise that a bit of Jersey indie-pop heritage sneaks its way into their sound, lifting the most sun streaked moments from The Feelies and Yo La Tengo and filtering them through the kaleidoscope of memories aimless drives through parched neighborhood streets. Martin Courtneys songwriting has a way of wrapping up the immediacy of youth with the ennui of age for the perfect shade of bittersweet bliss, mind you though, much heavier on the sweet than the bitter. Add to this Mondaniles (Ducktails/ Predator Vision) shimmering guitar strains full of equal parts sea foam and beer foam, pepper in the boardwalk clatter of Duguays drums Bleekers staccato low end and the perfect afternoon is just a lawn chair and boom box away." -Andy French/raven sings the blues

Another half hour in the haze, burned and overturned. "Endlessly Blazing" loads together a trio of semi-recent resin sessions: the A is a sidelong sinkhole into lava and quaaludes, the B starts with a sprawling spiral sweetleaf ballad before convulsing into a pissed withdrawal of dread drums, electronic fumes, and damaged howling.

In a city where garage rock reigns supreme and new bands form and fade away with the blink of an eye, its tough to get noticed unless your songs can satisfy punk rock attention spans. But with four- to six-minute tracks and slow, methodical drum beats, ROYAL BATHS have won their way into the hearts of even the most raucous audiences-a testament to both the ability that San Franciscans have to recognize talent when they see it, and also to the incredible music and spectacle that the ROYAL BATHS have created. The band has its obvious influences-The Velvet Underground and Spacemen 3-but to define them by these comparisons would be to vastly oversimplify their sound. Songwriters JEREMY COX and JIGMAE BAER draw from psychedelic soundscapes; dark, personal, and esoteric subject matter; and a bit of punks apathetic humor and exigency. They conjure up haunting, reverb-heavy hymns to the degenerate and the broken."- Emily Rose Epstein (SF Weekly, Thrasher Magazine, drummer for Ty Segall).

Artist: SPECTRE FOLK
Title: Blackest Medicine II
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Pete Nolan has been Spectre Folk since before drumming and strumming in Magik Markers was his main gig, and will be Spectre Folk long after he shuffles off this mortal coil. The main benefit of ghost folk is, you can play it way after youre dead, and while youre alive the Spectre can haunt any decent willing body with a gift for the unreal. This time around fellow Michigander Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) ran drums, Peter Meehan ( The Grey Lady) glued guitar and Aaron Mullan (Tall Firs) slithered bass in the Folk, creating an alchemy the Spectre hasnt floated since the days of basement wig wearing, in the short-lived Norman Bates era. The band entered Echo Canyon West with the intention of recording a 7" of the "up-tempo" version of Blackest Medicine, the title cut from the 2007 home-fi Woodsist debut. After several sessions, they emerged with a four song studio collage monster that wont fit in your locker and smells like smoked banana peels and undies blowing down an alleyway. A vibraphone, piano, and a plate reverb unit the size of a brooklyn apartment were all employed by the Spectre like Uri Gellar used spoons, inappropriately, desperate and bent. They physically turned the 2 inch reel of tape over so Peter Meehan could put subliminal backwards masking under his Erkin Koray worthy guitar solo on "4th Dimension Refs"and Nolan put the Temple Screamer to good use on tracks one and two, using samples of Shirley Temple Blacks Good Ship Lollipop as vocoder harmonies on choruses. As far as we know, this record also features the first gong solo by legendary skinsman Steve Shelley, since the gong heavy debut Crucifucks LP. Oh yeah, its full of burning psych-pop jammers too! Earmarking Nolans long standing but unspoken obsession with personal hygiene, "Keep Your Teeth Clean!" is a krauty suite that betrays Shelley and Mullans recent stint as the rhythm section for Neu! Their teutonic influence has the effect of putting the dreamy psych-fuzz that Nolan exhibited on last years "Compass" lp through a blender.. with a frog... that spills out into a wide open milky way head zone. You cant snuggle with this record, so strap yourself in and feel the Gs! Fearless as a lemming, Nolan has created a private universe here, a Society of the Spectre-cal if you will, and his gift is his freedom. Lets have a drift."- Elisa Ambrogio.

In about twenty minutes Sun Araw manages to navigate a psychedelic jungle cruise through canopy din & spooked drone, then he noses the boat out of the water and lifts into uncharted dub-spheres. The back half of this entranced tour is like being (fortunately) trapped inside an old Upsetters jam played at half-speed with twice the shaman-chant and reverb drenched percussion. Normally we wouldnt trust taking this kind of trip with just anybody, but with wheel and rudder alike in the hands of Magic Lantern co-captain Cameron Stallones, we can sip our yage-of-choice in peace and share the Sun Araw vision as one.

Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"If string theory is correct, this is approximately the thirteenth album MATT VALENTINE has released that definitely shouldnt be filed under a group name (TOWER RECORDINGS, BUMMER ROAD, GOLDEN ROAD, etc.). On the other hand, if string theory is correct, this might also be his 11,000th album. The truth, one suspects, is somewhere in between. Since bedding down in southern Vermont at the dawn of the century, MV has been as cussedly prolific as anyone. The gout of LPs, cassettes, CDRs, singles and 10-inches emerging from Maximum Arousal Farm has dwarfed the output of everyone cept maybe Sunburned or Thurston. Regardless, there can never be enough MV LPs in the world, and What I Became is a beaut. Most of it is as solo as Satan, apart from percussionist JEREMY EARL (of WOODS fame), whose presence is sometimes felt more than heard. ERIKA "EE" ELDER and MIKE "MUSKOX" SMITH also pop up on a track, but the general approach here is as naked-and-loaded as the soul of Icepick Slim. As usual, MVs tunes and procedures beggar easy generification. Elements of deep forest psychedelia brush against Crazy Horse guitar / vocal flourishes that explode to reveal volk-based form mayhem at its hickiest."-Byron Coley Limited to 500 copies with full-color jackets and inserts.

Deformed by contemporary experiments, bolstered by magical traditions, its the sound of now, right here, At Echo Lake."-David Keenan, Glasgow, March 2010.

Title: Songs Of Shame
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"The fourth full length by Woods, Songs of Shame, rips deeper with both 90-second and 10-minute forays into skeletal psychedelia. This is not to say the idiosyncratic songwriting style & vocalizing of Jeremy Earl is not present in spades but expanded, colored, and twisted into a tie-dye of soundscapes. Having toured incessantly over the last 12 months as a four piece (Jarvis Taveniere, G. Lucas Crane & Kevin Morby round out the band), many of the songs on Shame benefit from having been road worn, windblown, and deeply grooved." - Woodsist.

"Woods is a two-headed dog asleep on the porch and a butterfly on the windowsill... a Janus, a Gemini and a screen door. The sun wont fade and the earworms will not leave, but the jams go on too long for the girl in the back who wonders if her friends are at another bar. Still, the ballads always make her cry. Woods is up there relaying the Woods-feel: Folk-rock, fuzz, tambourines, tapes and raw lunch pulled straight from the yard. Pop songs and other things: Sun and Shade.” -Glenn Donaldson “Loose, shuffling and tuneful, the abridged Woods experience sounds more like Wowee Zowee than Workingmans Dead, but it hits just the right contradictory note of tight arrangements and breathing-room playing to get that back-porch, weird America vibe.” -Pitchfork
