Humble consistency and commitment to craft have long been Woods' defining virtues, so the boldness of the band's ninth full-length, City Sun Eater in the River of Light, is an invigorating rush. More

Acting as an extension of this spring's excellent With Light and With Love LP, this 7" finds smoked-out New York folkies Woods continuing to explore a territory that's lusherand perhaps even weirderthan their earlier lo-fi patchworks. More
