A Christmas gift from Woods

MP3: Christmas Time Is Here

As a Christmas gift to you, and to celebrate their upcoming Dec. tour dates, Woods has released a cover of the Vince Guaraldi classic “Christmas Time Is Here” as a free download. The tour launches next week on Dec. 7 in Burlington, VT.

On June 14th of this year, WOODS released their 6th full-length album, Sun & Shade, on their own Woodsist record label. Recorded Winter to Winter, 2010-2011, Sun & Shade 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.

“Woods is a two-headed dog asleep on the porch & a butterfly on the windowsill… a Janus, a Gemini & a screen door. The sun won’t fade & 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 & raw lunch pulled straight from the yard. Pop songs & other things: Sun & Shade.” -Glenn Donaldson
