On June 14th, WOODS will release their 6th full-length album, Sun & Shade, on their own Woodsist record label. Recorded Winter to Winter, 2010-2011, it features a helping hand from west coast brother, Glenn Donaldson (Skygreen Leopards, Art Museums) and is the first full album recorded at the new Woodsist Headquarters in the small upstate town of Warwick, NY.
“These guys veer into West Coast & Kraut explorations when they get bored of structure, but you won’t mind indulging them. Woods is back porch with a psychedelic sting in the guitars, a wild percussive clatter & somewhat unhinged desperation in the earworm vocal melodies of Jeremy Earl. Woods & Woodsist try to come-on all laid back with the hippie references, but you know they are not (who is really?). It’s the subtle tension, SUN & SHADE, that makes the music worth jamming…”- Glenn Donaldson
