Amoeba Review

04/14/2014

Hippieish indie-pop band Woods have got to be one of the most consistent bands in indie rock. At this point singer Jeremy Earl could hang up his guitar or move into cruise control, having founded the successful Woodsist label, yet With Light & With Love reminds us of how great this band continues to be. After a couple of nimble, minor-key pop songs, the album really gets going with the title track, a nine-minute jam that manages to hold interest for its entirety, with a pretty chorus, knotty solos and guitars chiming like ghosts in the background. “Moving to the Left” follows, with its jangly acoustic guitar, and catchy riffs bouncing in the backgrounds amid sunny, cinematic effects. While those longer tracks make up the juicy core of the album, those seeking concise pop songs are also rewarded, as the remainder of the album’s tracks are snappy in length, with sweet melodies, yet they also pack atmospheric touches, like the backwards guitar on “New Light,” dad-rockin’ organ on the spectacular “Leaves Like Glass” and whirling distortion on the Byrdsy “Twin Steps.” It can’t help but feel like every riff and note on With Light & With Love is smiling, even as these seemingly straightforward pop-rock songs are musically rich. It feels like an album you could put on any time and immediately feel like you’re out in nature with great friends and perfect weather. We’ll be playing this one all summer.
