Biography

Woods is an American folk rock band from Brooklyn, which formed in 2005.

The band's membership now includes singer-guitarist Jeremy Earl, multi-instrumentalist Jarvis Taveniere, bassist Kevin Morby and drummer Aaron Neveu.

Woods have released five albums, the latest being Bend Beyond. Pitchfork Media reviewed one of their previous albums, Songs of Shame, giving the band its "Best New Music" designation and described the sound as "a distinctive blend of spooky campfire folk, lo-fi rock, homemade tape collages, and other noisy interludes, all anchored by deceptively sturdy melodies."

Singer-guitarist and founder Jeremy Earl also runs the rising Brooklyn label Woodsist, for whom the band releases their work.
