Woods – With Light And With Love [Woodsist Records]
thewindow 4/29/2014 A Library
This album reminds me of getting stoned in high school: a cafe-free voyage into the unseen realms of consciousness-in actuality, getting pizza and sitting in a parking lot for two hours. This is an album of psych-pop with glowing freakinoutman sheen on the production/recording. There are feel-good melodic hooks everywhere. The lyrics are that vague, indie, hella-deep-bro shit that talks about love and light but doesn’t really say anything. A fat organ is usually present.
Overall it’s pretty and fun but don’t think too much about it. I would sandwich these cuts between more challenging material. I do appreciate cheap happiness.
