LISTEN: Woods Get Jazzy with “Sun City Creeps,” Announce “City Sun Eater in the River of Light” LP

Très éthiopiques!

Across eight albums, Brooklyn’s Woods have created a miniature world, a pocket universe of psychedelic folk implosions. That world’s expanding with their ninth, the just-announced City Sun Eater in the River of Light. While it eventually works in a wiggy guitar workout that would’ve been right at home on any of the group’s earlier records, it’s buoyed by a loping rhythm, mournful horn chart, and humid atmosphere that suggest Jeremy Earl’s been wearing out his Mulatu Astatke records lately.

Woods will be taking this show on the road beginning in April. Below, check out those dates, along with City Sun Eater in the River of Light‘s cover and track list.
