The fourth full-length by Woods, Songs of Shame, veers away from the lo-fi guerillas-in-the-mist sound of their previous Shrimper long-player, At Rear House, and presents both 90-second and ten-minute forays into skeletal psychedelia. The idiosyncratic songwriting style and vocalizing of Jeremy Earl is still present in spades on the album.   Woods have toured incessantly as a trio over the last 12 months, and the songs on Shame have had their mettle tested. Check out the straight-ahead pop of "To Clean" or the "Neil Jung" push/pull of "Rain On." Elsewhere, an expansive side of the band hinted at on their Woods Family Creeps LP finds full flight on the subtle ten-minute stretch "September With Pete" (that features Peter Nolan of Magik Markers guesting).  "Utterly lovely music--a huge recommendation." --Boomkat   "Every song is mesmerizing. At Rear House is the rarest of records--one that is forceful without being forced and delicate without being too precious. Folk or indie fans should not miss At Rear House." --Popmatters   "Long time since I heard a collection of songs this maximal, with arcs of impossible-to-forget harmonies that rank up there with Siltbreeze-era Guided By Voices all rendered in a beautiful tape-hiss style that will have you cracking out your old Majora and Flying Nun LPs for a back-to-back spin.... [I]t's the songs you'll keep coming back to, some of the best murk-informed combinations of words and music this side of the invention of loop pedals." --David Keenan, Volcanic Tongue
