Title: Its Cosy Inside
Format: CD
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"What is Woo? Woo are two - the brothers Mark and Clive Ives, who in the 1980s made a pair of addictively appealing yet largely unknown records. Their second, Its Cosy Inside, released in 1989, qualifies as some of the most electronic organic music ever made. We hearken back to a friendlier time, the 1970s, when Woo first began recording their relaxing and mysterious mood music, using electronically treated acoustic instruments without pretension, creating a sort of pop music for another universe. This is not to say that WOO were, are, or ever could be precious - far from it, in fact! But it is singular, in the mode of Neu!, Fela, and Ashra - a distinctive beat instantly recognizable to those in the know, and enjoyable by all. Woo have made music for more than 35 years now, much of it specifically designed for healing and meditation, while somehow entirely sidestepping the creative vortex of modern new age music." - Drag City.

Title: When The Past Arrives
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"WOO is brothers MARK and CLIVE IVES. Emboldened by the success of the recent reissue of Its Cosy Inside, Mark and Clive had a listen to hundreds of previously unreleased tracks recorded in the 70s and 80s to assemble their first new record in two decades, When The Past Arrives, out in March from Drag City / Yoga Records. With comparisons to Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Animal Collective, Cluster, and Brian Eno, WOOs profile in the world of atemporal music has been growing for years. For the lucky few who know, like Fela, or Neu!, WOO has their own instantly recognizable vibrantly pulsing sound, a quiet sound of comfort and contentment. When The Past Arrives is a collection of deceptively airy jams, addictive, crystalline. Uncut called Its Cosy Inside "the epitome of domestic bliss," and Pitchfork observed the album "stakes itself on the premise that the most cosmic and revelatory experiences youll ever have will all happen between your house and the backyard." - Drag City.

Title: Whichever Way You Are Going You Are Going Wrong
Format: LP
Label: Emotional Rescue
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"Emotional Rescue is delighted to announce welcoming the enigmatic, electo-acoustic duo WOO to the roster. Consisting of brothers MARK and CLIVE IVES, Woo will be releasing no less than three albums with the label, Whichever Way You Are Going being the first. Hard to catagorize, their personal folktronica is the result of Marks melodic guitar, clavinet, bass and vocals running through Clives array of synthesisers. filters and effects, creating something unique and sadly still, an largely unknown genius. Described as sounding like the music the Durutti Column would of made with Penguin Cafe Orchestra if produced by Brian Eno, Woo have recorded over 1,500 tracks, however here for the first time is the remastered reissue of their cult and cryptically titled debut album. With percussion that echoes elements of Kosmiches rolling rhythms, the subtle and often brooding textures and moods hint at fully formed songs that are in reality a series of instrumental vignettes which together create a cinematic whole. More than simple ambient minimalism, the liquid sounds seep in to your brain to offer a particular take of the English new age meditative mindset-the green and pleasant land maybe but with a twist of darkness not expected across 13 laconic pieces. LP limited to 500 copies with hand screen printed sleeves plus insert." -Emotional Rescue.
