Woods – Pushing Onlys

Somehow, these Brooklynites have a more genuine neo-folk sound than blatantly emulative bands like Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. Woods produces more authentic lo-fi folk rock than a lot of their peers while appearing significantly more hygienic. There’s something here that is sonically ambiguous, perhaps because one of their members – G. Lucas Crane – is a tape effects technician. Whatever it is, it’s working for me. The vocal melody could easily fit in with any artists in the Elephant Six collective, but singer-guitarist Jeremy Earl (yes, it’s a dude) enunciates sporadically in a fashion that escapes any comparison.
