AllMusic Review by

Originally a side project of Brooklyn rockers Meneguar intended to allow founding members Jeremy Earl and Christian DeRoeck a chance to scratch their freak-folk jones, Woods has developed a life of its own. On this second ful-length, Earl and DeRoeck take aural cues from Lou Barlow's seminal recordings with Dinosaur Jr. and very early Sebadoh with simultaneously intimate and eerie dual guitar and voice renderings. Great songs and chops poke through the down-home murk, making this one a keeper for all fans of lo-fi and psych-folk.
