HAND HABITS DEMAND IT

Wildly Idle, the warmly enveloping new album from Meg Duffy, aka Hand Habits, is out tomorrow on Woodsist. Today, she shares the video for one of the record's prettiest, most achingly wistful tracks, starring Duffy herself in a house with mysterious figures with fabric-draped faces, framed by soft-focus shots that lend the vid a gauzy, dream-like quality that suits the song nicely...

S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G.

S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G.

"Anglophile jams on a Tascam 388 tape machine..."

"S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G." is the new "video single" from latest Woodsist signees, San Francisco's the Art Museums.

songs of shame

songs of shame

I've already mentioned how much I love Woods' latest Captured Tracks 7" -- the b-side in particular -- and the band's stellar new full-length, Songs of Shame, is more of the same simple, breezy, and consistently awesome lo-fi pop (the label calls it road worn/windblown "skeletal psychedelia")...
