B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 22 SEPT. 2012

The prolific Brooklyn-based band Woods has just released their fifth (well, sort of) full-length, Beyond Bend, on their own Woodsist label. Beyond Bend is probably the band's most assessible recording to date, combining '60s psychedelic pop, garage and alt. folk to produce a solid collection of finely crafted pop songs. Solid - all the way through!
