We’ve got two very different new albums from Woodsist this week. One’s the new Herbcraft LP, and the other is this zesty album from post-punky power trio The Woolen Men. After an opener I didn’t really enjoy (think early REM gone a bit Bruce Springsteen, maybe?) the album picks up admirably as the threesome bound through ten well-formed chunks of spiky lo-fi pop.
At their best, on tracks like ‘Her Careers’, they cleverly meld the sounds of the past (influences like The Wipers, The Fall, The Replacements, early REM and late Husker Du are never too far away) with a more modern garage-indie sound like Parquet Courts, Spiderbags, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, or some of the Castleface lot. After initially being a little apprehensive, this album has turned out to actually be very good. Well worth investigating if you’re into slightly shambly post-punk-influenced indie rock.
