For their latest offering, the good folks at Singles Club—Brooklyn’s quarterly subscription-based record club and digital music journal—present a brand new track from our brothers in Woodsman. Recorded live to tape, “Further” captures the feel of Woodsman’s extended on-stage explorations and demonstrates the band’s adept ability at layering spacey, transcendent instrumental kosmische. Along with the music, Singles Club have also assembled a stunning digital journal that offers insight into how the song was forged and the band’s creation process. Have a listen to the track below and head over to Singles Club to sign up for your subscription.
I first met Jeffrey Silverstein a few months back when we co-hosted a loft show in Greenpoint, Brooklyn featuring acoustic guitar prodigy Daniel Bachman along with Olden Yolk and Gem Trails. But even before that, our paths had crossed numerous times in the digital sphere through a mutual love for music and the passion to discuss it and share it with others. It’s likely from that passion that Jeffrey, along with and his bandmate Chris Muccioli, came to revive the old-time tradition of the record club in the form of Singles Club–a new subscription record club and digital music journal published quarterly throughout the year. The first release in the series comes from Daniel Bachman, while others down the line will include Small Sur, Woodsman, and Wisdom Tooth.
Jeffrey was kind enough to take the time to discuss the concept of Singles Club, as well as a bit about himself and the inspiration for the project. Read on below and if you feel like this is as great of an idea as I do, head over to their Kickstarter and help support the project.
Henry Tree were a band from the land of Cleveland, Ohio who released a single album, titled Electric Holy Man, in 1969. Consisting of Leroy Markish on guitar and lead vocals, Carmen Castaldi on drums, Charles McLauughlin on bass, the group also featured an un-credited, jazz wizard guitarist named Bill DeArango. Combining Traffic style bluesy numbers and fuzzed out jams with DeArango’s jazz guided odysseys, this is a highly impressive psych LP with terrific guitar work.
