Woodsman @ SXSW 2011 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Woodsman

"After spreading the gospel in the Rhinoceropolis DIY scene of their native Denver, Woodsman unleashed a steady torrent of brain-burning 7"s and cassettes last year with the help of Mexican Summer and Lefse. On their new full-length, Rare Forms, Woodsman take full advantage of one of Germany's finest exports: the mechanical, "motorik" 4/4, or what Neu! drummer Klaus Dinger once called the "Apache-Beat." Still, their music evokes something more bucolic than the steel and asphalt of the autobahn. Warm guitar tones, distant melodies, grainy feedback loops, and shamanistic drumming summon panoramic landscapes and mystical milieus-- images, I think, that would come to mind even if the band hadn't adopted a pastoral namesake." [Altered Zones]
Woodsman, who are set to release their upcoming EP, Mystic Places, on October 25 via Fire Talk, have a few shows coming up including two in NYC this week. They play Cake Shop on Thursday (8/25) with Alex Bleeker and the Freaks, Orca Team and Flower Orgy and Shea Stadium on Friday (8/26) with Steve Gunn, Sacred Harp, and GDFX. They also play a New Haven, CT show on August 31 at BAR. Grab two MP3s from the upcoming EP above, or stream the same songs with all tour dates, below...
