Woods Family Creeps – Woods Family Creeps (Time Lag) 2008

Posted in Free Folk, hippies, Music, Woods with tags , on July 6, 2008 by noisenoisenoise

I was pretty excited when I came across this in Missing Links new releases pages. As anyone who reads this blog regularly knows I hate hippies. Always have. I make an exception for this mob though. Woods Family Creeps are basically Brooklyn’s Woods with an extra member. Not that you’d know there was an extra member on this, Wood Family Creeps sounds just as charmingly no-fi and minimalist as previous Woods releases. I’ve always had a thing for their lo-fi sweetly, weird love songs. For the most part  Wood Family Creeps certainly don’t fuck with the  formula exhibited by Woods on At Rear House and How to Survive  In the Woods but their is a more melancholy edge to the whole  thing. There are moments of experimental weirdness (especially the fourth track Family) that stick out a bit on an  album that is chock full of what are in essence pretty straight forward pop songs done by freak folk troubadours. 

I love their sound. Can’t get enough. Try to track it down if you love Woods as much as I do.

The first track, End to End
