LISTEN: Though They Can Definitely Hear, Woods “Can’t See At All”
City Sun Eater in the River of Light is out April 8 via the band’s mothership label, Woodsist.
Woods have never put out a bad album. Some have been better than others, sure—At Echo Lake and Bend Beyond immediately come to mind—but through eight releases over nine years, nothing has been anything less than solid.
Right on schedule, City Sun in the River of Light, the band’s ninth LP, is due in less than two months—on April 8. We’ve already heard the Mulatu Astatke–influenced lead single “Sun City Creeps,” and today comes the second track, which continues the trend of funkiness, and indicates that this will likely be the most worldly sounding Woods album yet (the LP cover’s color scheme seems to validate that suspicion).
