With Light and With Love - WOODSIST
FILTER Grade: 83%
By Kyle MacKinnel on April 15, 2014
In 2014, Woods still stand tall, having morphed from a lo-fi weirdo electric folk band on their own fringe label into a veritable lighthouse on the now populous independent coast. Scratchy four-tracks and G. Lucas Crane’s tape manipulations in the decaying Rear House have been swapped out for Jarvis Taveniere’s very well-aging studio prowess and a pared down four-piece configuration. The thrust of this band begins and has always begun with Jeremy Earl’s mastery at cranking out tight songs, and With Light and With Love is chock full of ’em. Check “Moving To the Left,” “New Light” and “Leaves Like Glass.” In Woods, we have choice.
