Woods is a ridiculously productive band, with three solid albums coming out in the last three years. Somehow Jeremy Earl, Jarvis Taveniere, G. Lucas Crane and Kevin Morby continue to put out solid material that sticks in your ears, the most recent of which is Sun and Shade.
“Find Them Empty” is the A-side of a 7″ coming out on Sacred Bones (vinyl) and Woodsist (digital) on July 19. “Find Them Empty” and B-side “Be There” were recorded as a companion to Sun and Shade, and the similarities are seen on the track. One warning, however: Jeremy Earl shreds.
This track is the perfect addition to the Woods catalog and shows the innovation and ability that makes this band so prolific and amazing to listen to. The use of organ gives to the throwback sound that Woods has perfected, and Earl’s vocals are still eerie yet comforting.
Woods played St. Cecilia’s during Northside, a show I missed because I was at Beirut, but judging by this video of “Find Them Empty” from Louis Gruber on Vimeo, the quartet tore it down:
Woods is touring and will be in DC with Kurt Vile and White Fence on August 10.
