Woods are the latest of the indie lo-fi garage bands to release an album to critical acclaim. And for good reason. Their new album Songs of Shame is immediate, catchy, and personal all at the same time. However, they take a different approach to lo-fi than their peers and Woodsist Records label mates (Vivian Girls, Wavves, Crystal Stilts, Sic Alps, Kurt Vile). Their’s is a sound more, well, woodsy. You could say they’re the psych-folk arm of the lo-fi scene. Ha. That was a ridiculous sentence. Regardless, it’s an excellent album. There’s alot of talent swimming around in this lo-fi pool.

The new self titled release from Wavves is the most recent entry into the budding category of indie rock dubbed lo-fi garage rock/fuzz punk/noise pop/etc. Whatever you want to call it, these young bands (including Wavves, No Age, Times New Viking, Vivian Girls, etc.) have a lot of raw talent and ideas. Perhaps being brought up on grunge music myself in the 90’s gives me the ability to appreciate these new misfits. Whatever the reason, I’m into them and eagerly anticipating what they have stored for us in the future.
Sample and enjoy…
Whatever you call their brand of rock, it’s clearly evident they were turning some of this shit up in their pre-teen bedrooms…
