Editorial Reviews

2009 release, the fourth full-length by Woods, Songs of Shame, veers away from the lo-fi guerillas-in-the-mist sound of their previous Shrimper long-player, at Rear House, and presents both 90-second and ten-minute forays into skeletal psychedelia. The idiosyncratic songwriting style and vocalizing of Jeremy Earl is still present in spades on the album. Woods have toured incessantly as a trio over the last 12 months, and the songs on Shame have had their mettle tested.

I know nothing about this band. I stumbled onto them, got this wonderful new album of theirs - and haven't stopped listening to it since. Woods' latest record works wonderfully as a single piece - it's got a definite feel and personality to it. It's a really wise, old-soul-genuine rock and roll album - and Songs of Shame reminds me of what LPs ought to be like. Great life to this, tight, and the musicianship is very clever and energetic. Research has revealed a thoughtful, likable band. Good minds at work, here. Lots of heart and character. I'm looking quite forward to checking out Woods' other titles: Five Stars. This is the real deal. This band is going to go a long way - I love it. Don't miss this album!! Woods do the trick, and Songs of Shame definitely gets you where you want to go - and does it smoothly, with a great little landing. Terrific LP!! A+

To be honest, I wouldn't be writing this review if there were more on this page. I'm stunned that (at the time) there are only 3 reviews.

I bought this album on a whim, entirely based on finding the song "Rain On" on youtube. For the last six months I've listened to this album more than any other and I still find it exciting each time. I have filled out with Woods discography since then, but Songs of Shame stands out as the most compelling.

The music has this strange balance between elegant and ramshackle; the best of them feel like they could fall apart at any moment, but that is part of the charm. The lyrics are downcast but earnest while the arrangement is uplifting and raw in all the right places.

Songs of Shame isn't for everyone; the music can be too simple in some ways, too artsy in others, and the production is lo-fi all the way. But it's the kind of album that can captivate - if it hits, the reward will be well worth the risk.

This is a fantastic album, very different from Woods recent work and probably my favorite of theirs. The songs are sad but not depressing, low fi and remind me of wandering the forests on the east coast. Cool instrumental track in the middle, most songs are short(<3 minutes).
