Woods, 'Songs of Shame' (Shrimper/Woodsist)

7
Songs of Shame
Critical Mass
Label: Shrimper/Woodsist

by Abigail Everdell

Woods may move in fuzzy lo-fi circles (frontman Jeremy Earl runs the Fuckittapes and Woodsist labels, which have released records by Wavves, Psychedelic Horseshit, and Blank Dogs), but the Brooklyn foursome's classic melodies don't take a Dustbuster to uncover. With a squeaky Neil Young falsetto, backed by shambly wah-wah guitar and mop-bucket percussion, Earl chirps blithely inscrutable lyrics through a strand of airy, bedroom-psych pearls. The wobbly, ten-minute "September With Pete" outlasts itself by half, but folk-pop bookends "The Number" and "Rain On" balance the sag.
