WOODS - “With Light And Love”

Woods’ brand of pop shamanism has undergone several gradual transformations over their past few albums, but on “With Light And With Love”, the tinkering reveals an expanded sonic palette that includes singing saw, heavier emphasis on percussion, and a saloon piano that sounds like it was rescued from a flooded basement. Distinct from both the stoned volk of their earliest recordings and the Kraut-y dalliances of more recent fare, “With Light And With Love” showcases a more sophisticated brand of contemporary drug music that owes more to Magical Mystery Tour than motorik.

James Supercave / The Afternoon EP

Los Angeles based band James Supercave have a new four-song EP out today titled The Afternoon, via Hit City U.S.A. The Afternoon is the LA quintet’s first official release. The band’s production is engrossing with a sultry delivery, a hybrid of guitar solos and analogue synths, like finding David Bowie locked into a groove above J-Dilla beats. As themes run the gamut with a casually apocalyptic smirk and cool, quick wit, the songs escalate naturally to epic scales, impressive and moving. Stream The Afternoon EP above.
