"Woods play experimental "folk" music that ventures out into nearly free form at times, yet still manages to hold together as beautiful songs that have me humming for days at a time. Jeremy and Christian both also play in Meneguar, and Jeremy runs the awesome cassette label, Fuck It tapes. There is a CD version of their amazing double cassete coming out on Release the Bats, followed by a split 12" with the amazing Raccoo-oo-oon on Not Not Fun." - Gilgongo.

Title: At Rear House
Format: CD
Label: Shrimper
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"WOODS began in the woods, at the foot of Bear Mountain. In the earliest days it was a collaborative improvisational group with two core members and several guests, known as "Woodsists." Shortly thereafter, JEREMY EARL & CHRISTIAN DEROECK of MENEGUAR (Troubleman Ltd.) emerged from the woods, dusted themselves off, and began to walk upright. The two woodsists immersed themselves in human culture, learned to craft a melody, to wield a tambourine, to construct a crude phonograph from spare bicycle parts. They learned the value of a cassette. Earl and DeRoeck returned to the woods and shared their newfound knowledge with the other woodsists. At Rear House is the result, songs and improvisations by outsiders, inspired by the human experience. Earl is also the Fuck It Tapes, Woodsist label chief." - Shrimper.

Title: At Echo Lake
Format: CD
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"The distance between 2007s At Rear House and 2010s At Echo Lake may at first seem only semantic, but it more properly represents a move from a kind of informal back porch jam ethos to a fully-committed vision of the infinite possibilities of group playing. "Over the past few years, WOODS has established themselves as an anomaly in a world of freaks. They were an odd proposition even in the outre company of vocalist / guitarist / label owner JEREMY EARLs Woodsist roster, perpetually out of time, committed to songsmanship in an age of noise, drone and improvisation, to extended soloing, oblique instrumentals and the usurping use of tapes and F/X in an age of dead-end singer-songwriters. Recent live shows have seen them best confuse the two, playing beautifully constructed songs torn apart by fuzztone jams and odd electronics. At Echo Lake feels like a diamond-sharp distillation of the turbulent power of their live shows, in much the same way that The Grateful Deads "Dark Star" single amplified and engulfed the planetary aspect of their improvised takes. Some of the material here--the opening "Blood Dries Darker," the euphoric "Mornin Time"-is so lush that lesser brains wouldve succumbed to the appeal of strings and horns, but At Echo Lake is more Fifth Dimension than Notorious Byrd Brothers, nowhere more so than on "From the Horn," a track as beautiful in its assault on form as "Eight Miles High" or Swell Maps "Midget Submarines." But despite the instrumental innovation the album heralds-G. LUCAS CRANEs psychedelic tape work on "Suffering Season," guest musician MATTHEW VALENTINEs harmonica and modified banjo / sitar on "Time Fading Lines"-At Echo Lake is all about the vocals. Woods secret weapon is the quality of Earls voice, absorbing the naive style of Jad Fair, Jonathan Richman and Neil Young while rethinking it as a discipline and a tradition. Here he is singing at the peak of his powers, in a high soulful style bolstered by heavenly arrangements of backing vocals. At Echo Lake feels like the transmission point for teenage garage from the past to the future. Deformed by contemporary experiments, bolstered by magical traditions, its the sound of now, right here, At Echo Lake."-David Keenan, Glasgow, March 2010.

Title: Songs Of Shame
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"The fourth full length by Woods, Songs of Shame, rips deeper with both 90-second and 10-minute forays into skeletal psychedelia. This is not to say the idiosyncratic songwriting style & vocalizing of Jeremy Earl is not present in spades but expanded, colored, and twisted into a tie-dye of soundscapes. Having toured incessantly over the last 12 months as a four piece (Jarvis Taveniere, G. Lucas Crane & Kevin Morby round out the band), many of the songs on Shame benefit from having been road worn, windblown, and deeply grooved." - Woodsist.

Title: Sun And Shade
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Woods is a two-headed dog asleep on the porch and a butterfly on the windowsill... a Janus, a Gemini and a screen door. The sun wont fade and the earworms will not leave, but the jams go on too long for the girl in the back who wonders if her friends are at another bar. Still, the ballads always make her cry. Woods is up there relaying the Woods-feel: Folk-rock, fuzz, tambourines, tapes and raw lunch pulled straight from the yard. Pop songs and other things: Sun and Shade.” -Glenn Donaldson “Loose, shuffling and tuneful, the abridged Woods experience sounds more like Wowee Zowee than Workingmans Dead, but it hits just the right contradictory note of tight arrangements and breathing-room playing to get that back-porch, weird America vibe.” -Pitchfork
