–Featured Release: Woods: “Love Is Love”

Image result for Woods: Love Is Love

Genre: Indie-Folk/Psychedelic // Label: Woodsist

Background:

Woods have evolved quite a bit since they first formed twelve years ago, slowly turning their minimal indie-folk approach into more of an elaborate, psychedelic experience.  With Love Is Love, the band continues trekking down that path with the added thematic twist of some post-election themes that the band has cited as their primary inspiration for creating the LP.  Just one year after the release of City Sun Eater In The River Of Light, Woods figure to once again make a splash in indie, psychedelic, and folk circles as they continue to emerge as a prominent leader within their musical niche.

Listen to the title track below:

Kind of a meh week for me despite the sheer volume of releases. I'll be checking Woods and Incubus (mostly out of nostalgia).

Also for prog rock fans and the older set, Procol Harum's first new album in 17 years (and maybe their last one ever?), "Novum" releases this week.

SowingSeason

Can't get 'em all. I draw mostly from 2-3 sources that cover niche indie & metal, and major label releases respectively. I may add a few when I get the time but unfortunately I'm about to be off the radar more or less for a week.

FlipTrackz

Woods last album was pretty good but i got a feeling this new album will be a dip in quality.

Xenorazr
04.19.17
Will possibly review Les Discrets.

dbizzles

There are some sweet album covers this week. Daisyhead, Ghost Bath (too bad they fucking blow), Les Discrets, Moonbow, Mortiis, Robyn Hitchcock (lol) and Vampire.

Atari
