guitars weave & bubble across peppy drumming, capturing the band’s live intensity, but keeps the intimate sadness that makes them so great.

the most full Woods record yet is as bright & catchy & ever but with more darkness lurking in the hidden depths; Jeremy Earl is singing about some heavy stuff, but it’s hidden under his gorgeous falsetto & charmingly obtuse lyrics. Album opener ‘Bend Beyond’ has long been a jammy live staple, but here it’s compact and tight with a stuttered guitar line & a worldending collision of instruments. Meanwhile ‘Is It Honest’ jangles along happily until you notice Earl is in a more destructive zone than the bright music initially suggests, singing ‘It’s so fucking hard to see’.
