Woods' 'Strange to Explain' - "warm album of feelgood rock"

"Such mellow American folk-rock plays uneasily in these staggeringly anxious times. Yet the set’s charms - slinking choruses, hushed lead vocals -suit this disarmingly unassuming band" - New Yorker wrote about the New York band's new album, a meditation on dreams. PopMatters says that "Woods had established an instantly recognizable aesthetic without ever sounding trapped by it", adding that the album "despite the impending doom, sounds euphoric". Brooklyn Vegan calls it a "terrific album... full of sunny music, beaming with hope". Treblezine likes the atmosphere of it - "a warm, healing album of feelgood rock".
