Woods - Morning Light

The Brooklyn group are latching onto something new.

You’d be easily fooled into thinking Woods were the same laid back-types churning out album after album like they’re chopping logs. Accompanying new album ‘City Sun Eater in the River Light’ will be the band’s own skateboard. Tony Hawk, eat your heart out. But instead of grinding their way through the gears, Woods’ latest LP is a rich, ultra-refined work, the kind most studioheads would take years to replicate. Everything is simplified on ‘City Sun…’. Whereas before Woods could get lost in a sea of psych and effects, now they put the melody first. ‘Morning Light’ stands out as one of their clearest songs to date, concise in delivery and old-school in its analog aesthetic. Hawaii-style guitars float by, Jeremy Earl’s falsetto leading the way. Woods have nine records to their name, but they’re latching onto something new.
