Woods

(16 May 2014: Bowery Ballroom — New York)

At the Bowery Ballroom on a Friday in May, Woods had their first show in New York in a year ahead of a long string of dates to promote their new album With Light and With Love. Songs from this new album, “a radical departure for the band—a more refined and pop-oriented record” (nyctaper), made up the bulk of the show though the set included a cover Pink Floyd too. Woods were joined by openers Quilt, whose free spirited sound flowed tranquilly through the crowd in advance of the psychedelic headliners.


When I went up to the balcony, I found out Woods’ interesting backdrop wasn’t a video projection. Two men were messing around with gel and liquid overlays on top of old school screen projectors. The homemade effects fit excellently into the band’s organic set, melding experimental sounds with their melodies. As we described it earlier, their new album is “a complicated, rewarding balance between the grip of the past and the possibility of, if not the future, than at least the now.” It is a rewarding listen and their show is exciting to see, so check out their tour dates below.
  
Plus you can stream Woods’ new single “Tambourine Light” and download the full show from Bowery Ballroom over at nyctaper’s site (thank him for the recording while you are there and then let Quilt know they should let him release their set!).
