Unlike other lo/no-fi acts in Brooklyn's DIY-or-die scene, Woods take their love of home recording down a dusty basement tapes road. Case in point: a healthy portion of Songs of Shame was premiered on an extremely-limited cassette, paving the way for the Neil Young nods to come. That's a compliment, too. From the fragile falsetto of frontman Jeremy Earl (a.k.a. the founder of Woodsist Records/Fuck It Tapes) to the riff-riding psych-rock of songs like "Gypsy Hand" and "September With Pete," Woods are masters of a very welcome sound — acid-damaged Americana on a Bushwick budget.
