Woven Bones – “If It Feels Alright”

I’ve posted about Austin garage trio Woven Bones in various contexts: The Gerard Cosloy-curated Casual Victim Pile, the guys’ day jobs, and, of course, their sounds. We’re about to have more of the latter via the release of the group’s full-length debut In and Out and Back Again. Lead track “If It Feels Alright” finds them stomping in top fuzzed and primitive J&MC/Damned/Troggs form. They’ve recently added their “good friend Carolyn” on drums, who they call “our Mo Tucker” over at MySpace, so feel free to bring up VU again, too. If that isn’t enough, vocalist Andy Burr recently mentioned to me in an email: “There’s a VU-ish farfisa melody on it, which no other song of ours has had.” True. Like all their others, though, it’s short, dark, barbed, sort of sweet (see the above pink bubble) and should leave you wanting more.
