Teleseparating The Woodsman
Woodsman continue their prolific ways, releasing new EP Teleseparation after bringing out their third album Woodsman earlier this year. The four tracks here are typically layered and atmospheric, roiling in Kraut-rock rhythms and the euphoric mode of repetition within repetition. It's a stream-of-consciousness "jam" that the final song off Woodsman was a mere excerpt from - and gives you a strong idea on what this band does when crafting their sound.
This week has been a strange one for me to say the least, but this is one release that I have reached for when the time comes to let the stress leave the body and give mind and soul over to the music. The band is playing at the excellent Incubate festival at Tilburg in the Netherlands today (if you are there - you lucky sucker!), before playing London on Sunday at The Water Rats.
