Product Description

The distance between 2007 s At Rear House and 2010 s At Echo Lake may at first seem only semantic, but it more properly represents a move from a kind of informal back porch jam ethos to a fully-committed vision of the infinite possibilities of group playing. Over the past few years, Woods has established themselves as an anomaly in a world of freaks. They were an odd proposition even in the outré company of vocalist / guitarist / label owner Jeremy Earl s Woodsist roster, perpetually out of time, committed to songsmanship in an age of noise, drone and improvisation, to extended soloing, oblique instrumentals and the usurping use of tapes and F/X in an age of dead-end singer-songwriters. Recent live shows have seen them best confuse the two, playing beautifully constructed songs torn apart by fuzztone jams and odd electronics.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Gannon on 9 July 2010
Format: Audio CD
There's an adage about true perfection having to be imperfect and it's one that Woods have been putting to good use over their previous LPs. With muffled production, scuffed guitar lines and a creaking falsetto their psych-folk hybrid has previously ranged from loose and lengthy jams to tighter stoner-psych à la Arbouretum all the way to the fluttery freak-folk of Devendra Banhart.

Still staunchly draped in tape-deck production, At Echo Lake however has noticeably less rambling psychedelia than the last album Songs of Shame, so it's out with 9-minute moments like "September With Pete", at least on record. The band still reputedly wheel them out for the live show, a claim not difficult to believe as several of the janglingly playful outros on this latest offering prove.

In being more succinct, Woods seem to have struck a winning balance. Consequently, Jeremy Earl's rag-tag bunch (dually true as he also owns the label) are flashed back to the 60s thanks to their new-found cleaner execution. Strong melodies permeate the relaxed collection, and, on tracks like "Death Rattles", hazy Doors-like guitar pillars stand unaffected, bloodshot and swaying. The echo-y guitar licks of the opener "Blood Dries Darker" belong on the Bullitt soundtrack, the persistent acoustic bridges and dreamy vocal to a summer's afternoon cookout with likeminded Ganglians.

Echo Lake is a persistent theme, one close to the heart of Woods.

A really warm collection by the Woods - not quite the strength of song that you get on Get Lost or quite as polished as they become but a really smile enducing record that its quite hard to take off of heavy rotation

Woods are a song-writting-band. Good tunes and a sound like The Feelies meeting west-coast.
But still - they sound som much better live!!!

Woods continues the Songs of Shame legacy... 25 May 2010
By Joshua Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Woods does it again with another healthy dose of skeletal psychedelia. Throw on Echo Lake for some sunshiney-dew-dipped golden melodies. Fantastic.

sooOOooOOooOO GOOD! 5 Oct. 2010
By scotthew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i hate writing reviews. i just like reading them. so i'm gonna keep this short. i'm only writing this cuz there are really not enough reviews on here for this amazing band. I LOVE THIS BAND. and i love this album. imo, "echo lake" is as good as "songs of shame". sample the songs, "blood dries darker" and "time fading lines" and see if you like them as much as i do.
Really Very Wonderful 10 April 2012
By Kevin F. Tasker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a delightful, lulling and excruciatingly beautiful album. Standout tracks include Blood Dries Darker, Suffering Season and Death Rattles. For anyone interested in Indie music, this is one of the finest, most nuanced bands on the scene. Woods strive to blend into perfection whimsical vocals and stunning melodies. The lyrics can be a little dark but the entire experience is one of jubilance. Crank up your stereo for the opening track and leave it there. This album is a masterpiece.
