Few things feel like summer more than a new Woods song. The band’s hazy folk-pop proclivities dust up pastoral hues and the kind of blissful harmonies that lend themselves well dazed moments spent in the heat. The band’s last album saw Earl and co. embrace family and solitude while still retaining their amber glow. Any great album feels like it ends too soon, and Strange To Explain certainly leaves an ache when the last notes fade to the winds. Seems the band felt so too As they gear up for the return of Woodsist Festival, a new, expanded edition of the album dubbed More Strange is set to be released digitally on July 23rd. The new version includes two new singles, “Nickels and Dimes” and the previously discussed “Waiting Around For A New Me.” Two outtakes (“Daylight Push” and “Sun Jammer”) and an alternate version of the album track “Be There Still” round out the new material. The new track is a call to see if there are still sympathetic ears out there after time spent in solitude and with the fest on the way in September, the feeling of communal comfort seems only fitting.
