We have seen Woods on four prior occasions, but they have never sounded as good as they did Wednesday last at Bowery. While their electric “freak folk” certainly has a distinct lo-fi element that fits well with the DIY shows where we had previously seen them, the superb sound system at the Bowery clarifies the songs and gives us a different light within which to see this excellent group. As their new album Songs of Shame has received very favorable reviews, we expect that Woods will play through high-end systems often in the near future.

Acidjack recorded this set from the center of the floor, where the crowd was significantly more sedate than the Wavves set later in the evening. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
