Published Jan 09, 2014Brooklyn indie folk outfit Woods have announced plans to return with a new album, their follow-up to 2012's Bend Beyond and seventh LP overall.
Dubbed With Light and With Love, the record will be available on April 15 via Woodsist. While Woods have shifted their approach over the years, a press release promises "an expanded sonic palette that includes singing saw, heavier emphasis on percussion, and a saloon piano that sounds like it was rescued from a flooded basement. "
It also adds: "Distinct from both the stoned volk of their earliest recordings and the Kraut-y dalliances of more recent fare, With Light And With Love showcases a more sophisticated brand of contemporary drug music that owes more to Magical Mystery Tour than motorik."
Album track "Leaves Like Glass," a laid-back little slab of sunny vocals, breezy bass lines and driving organ, can be streamed below.
Also below, you'll find Woods newly announced North American tour, which includes Canadian stops in Toronto and Montreal.
