Woods – “Be All Be Easy”

woods-be-all-easy

These days, few bands possess live improvisational abilities on par with Woods. Harnessing some otherwordly power and channeling it through their distinct, creep-folk sound, they manage to straddle the ever elusive cross-section between intergalactic exploration and structured song. And so the re-recording of their live staple “Be All Be Easy” seems like a natural evolution considering the direction the song has taken since its inception. The recording also serves as a farewell to Rear House, Woods’ home, recording studio, creative refuge and beloved shithole for 10 long years. The track is featured on a new 7″, which also includes the previously shared cover of The Kinks’ cover “God’s Children,” out July 9 on Woodsist.  Both are the first Woods recordings to feature new drummer, Aaron Neveu, formerly of Mmoss.

We’re honored to be hosting Woods when they come through Toronto on July 17 with Brooklyn garage rockers Parquet Courts. The evening will also feature liquid light projections by Lightsweetcrude and a lovely poster designed by Curtis Godino (see below). Follow us on Facebook for chances to win tickets!
