songs of shame



I've already mentioned how much I love Woods' latest Captured Tracks 7" -- the b-side in particular -- and the band's stellar new full-length, Songs of Shame, is more of the same simple, breezy, and consistently awesome lo-fi pop (the label calls it road worn/windblown "skeletal psychedelia"). Highlights include the group's killer Graham Nash cover, and the fuzzy, pensively sad backwoods psych-folk ballad "Rain On":

mp3:
woods :: rain on

Songs of Shame comes out April 14 on Woodsist. You can also purchase their 7" here; in case you missed this one the first time around:

mp3:
woods :: the dark
