Woods + Horse Thief

New music from Brooklyn based Woods called, With Light and with Love. This new album is evokes a lot of psychedelic motifs of classic kraut rock and mixes with the stylings of acoustic folk-rock. Of course the signature of Woods is the lead singer’s falsetto vocals. I have become dangerously obsessed with the track “Moving to the Left.” The guitar solos and vocals make it super carefree, reminiscent of early Flaming Lips.

Horse Thief is a little more on the contemporary side of folk-rock. Well built songs with catchy guitar riffs and lovely singing. Horse Thief has songs that make you want to dance around. The new album is their first full length called, Fear in Bliss, and it is very solid.

Woods, Tomorrow’s Tulips, Miracle Parade, and New Releases

So I know I have been slacking a little bit so here is a bunch of great bands and music. Yesterday’s notable new releases were Thievery Corporation, Handsome Furs, and Shabazz Palaces.
So Woods is a really cool band from Brooklyn. Their newest album, Sun and Shade┬ácame out last month and it sounds great. It has a lot classic indie acoustic-rock to it. Coupled with Jeremy Earl’s folk-y high vocals, it’s a sound best described as lo-fi folk rock.
Miracle Parade just came out with their first full length, Hark and Other Lost Translations last week. They are another kind of indie folk rock, I really enjoy the single, “The Dying Physicist.”
The last band I’ll share for today is Tomorrow’s Tulips, who I just learned of today. Another cool lo-fi band emerging out of Costa Mesa, CA. I love their crunchy guitars and the use of the reverb on the vocals. Their first full length is due to come out on July 19th on Galaxia Records.
