Woods: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Aug 1 2012

As a state with a population of over 37 million, condensing California into one container — metaphorically or otherwise — would be quite a feat. But the Brooklyn band Woods attempts to do just that on "Cali in a Cup," a handsome, laid-back, and sunlit number infused with just the right dose of harmonica. The song, which will appear on the group's forthcoming seventh album, Bend Beyond, is another slice of warm indie-folk from the prolific and self-sufficient players also responsible for small label Woodsist and this weekend's corresponding Woodsist Festival in Big Sur. In a 2011 interview, Woods member G Lucas Crane described his act's aesthetic as not being about a sound but "an intent" and "heart" — an altogether believable sentiment.
