On their fifth release, At Echo Lake, Brooklyn psychedelic folksters Woods continue their joyous study of the art of stylist juxtaposition. Not content to let their pretty tunes stand alone, front man/founder Jeremy Earl and company always throw an unexpected curveball listeners’ way. A single electric guitar line suddenly wails over what was a clean, acoustic melody. Loops and samples infiltrate tracks of simplistic classic folk like an audio representation of the lives of its creators, who are kids making seemingly traditional American music while living in the heart of Bushwick. With The Art Museums, The Samples. MA’CHELL DUMA LAVASSAR
