Songs For Nothing is now available from After Music Recordings!
A soundtrack for the end of civilization, written for those who can only watch it happen on Youtube with the camera miles away. Songs for Nothing is something of a capstone in Woods’ musical trajectory, combining the atmosphere of “Creation Death Machine,” the creeping walls of “Fairweather Mask” and various textural elements that showed up on the 7″s, tapes and cdrs inbetween. Overall, though, this record finds Woods’ in his most powerful form to date, losing a minimal amount of past experimentations to make way for a more straight forward, pissed off approach. Crashing pianos, broken electronics, a variety of different vocal styles, synth swells and field reocrdings combine with a thematic push focused on chronicling the trajectory of the world and our inability to control it. This is a record about screaming truth to power in a sound proof room.
