|Woods - God's Children 7" |
Woods reconfigure their song "Be All Easy" from the 2011 album Sun and Shade to match what its evolved to in the live setting. The resulting track is fuller and more robust than the album version, giving new shades to the originals sparse
| arrangements. Its still classically blissful Woods, flown overhead with Jeremy Earl's smile inducing falsetto but now blossomed into a summertime jam among friends; a backporch anthem that can't help but brighten any day. On the b-side they cover the Kinks' oft forgotten track "God's Children" off the soundtrack to the '71 film Percy. The band makes it their own, capturing the homespun nuance of the original and opening it up to their sunburst brand of pastoral folk-rock. The whole release acts as the end of an era for the band, its the final two recordings laid down at the band's long time home studio, Rear House. Its a sweet and fitting send-off and as they embrace a new home for future projects this will cap an era in which they came into their own as a band.
