AOTD: Woods - Bend Beyond

Album of the Day

Woods
Bend Beyond
Woodsist, 2012

The last five years, Woods have been cranking out material with such Portugal. The Man-like prolificacy that it's easy to take it for granted-- or to be angered by if you're a fan of terribly overlooked related project Meneguar, which seems to be getting little to none of the members' attention at this point. But here we are with another Woods full-length, and as expected, Bend Beyond is rife with the Flower Power guitar chime and sunny-vibe vocals that are perfect for lazy weekend listening. I dig bands whose approach is old-school and frill-free, and that's very much what you get with Woods. Whether they shooting for a more rustic country feel ("Back to the Stone"), venturing into classic psychedelia ("Find Them Empty"), or just going full-on late-career Beatles ("Lily"), the focus never seems to stray from simple, taut songwriting. Their schtick may be getting a little predictable, but there's nothing wrong with consistency when you're consistently this good.
