Woods Get Naked for Daytrotter, Prove Hairy


Stripping down and baring it all has never seemed to have been a problem for Woods, who, prior to the Woods Family Creeps record, were basically a low-key folk project sans intergalactic jams, music concrete forays and other far out shit. Don't get me wrong, I love mix of the sylvan and the cosmic, in fact, it's absolutely wondrous, and the band's recent Daytrotter session proves it. Stripped down, but certainly not out, G. Lucas Crane conjures spirit worlds with his Sony TCM-929 tape deck, illuminating Earl's friendly ghost songs with visions of a Utopian yurt community that sustains on its own produce, nuts and wildberries. Of course, Utopian communities are never perfect, and that's where Woods magic lies, projecting light on the untouched and contrasting it with warbling fits of exploration and decay. Anyone familiar with the band's Acoustic Family Creeps (Live in the Woods) bootleg knows what's good, only this time the band lays the bare bones treatment on 3(!) new tracks, along with Songs of Shame standout "Where and What You Are?" Dig it here.
