Songs of Shame by Woods (2009)


This is some pretty awesome spring music here. This band has released 2 other albums; At Rear House (2007), and How to Survive In-In the Woods (2007). They're last.fm profile describes them as an "acid/strange/psych folk rock band based out of Brooklyn, New York." I would also describe them as Lo-Fi, for sure, as the recording style is fuzzy and sounds like they are playing just for you, which is a great quality to have in these days of perfectly pristine production. I haven't heard the aforementioned other two records, but I can't wait to.

Favorite song so far: "Rain On". Put simply: this is a very, very pretty collection of songs.

Here is "The Number", another great track:


Track Listing:
  1. To Clean
