Woods is readying their seventh album right now. It's wild to me that since I've first heard Woods, and since their introduction to the world, they've released a new record every year; each one just as brilliant and loveable as the last. Their sound has grown over the past seven years to sound more fully produced and often richer, but at the core is always Jeremy Earl's impressionable voice, softly guiding us along his travels, loves, worries and woes. The same appears to be true of Bend Beyond, this year's LP offering from Woods and their seventh full-length record. The first track shared from the record is a rolling folk jaunt that instantly warms the heart.
