Woven Bones – “Guess You Already Knew”

Woven Bones maintain such a great hazy, kinda claustrophobically deep atmosphere. We’ve previously entered the trio’s Austin garage via Casual Victim Pile, their day jobs, their earlier sounds and last time via the VU-ish “If It Feels Alright,” the lead track form their forthcoming debut full-length In and Out and Back Again. Let’s continue down the In And Out path with the buzzing “Guess You Already Knew.” It features that mid-tempo Stooges pulse you often find in Woven Bones’ dark, scruffy snarl.

Woven Bones – “Guess You Already Knew”

In And Out And Back Again is out 5/18 via HoZac. Also, though this is definitely sexy music, the album title isn’t sexual. As the band notes at MySpace:


In and Out and Back Again =

ups and downs / dark and light.

into the up and back into the down.

dark and light.

more dark and more light and more falling back into the dark to reach the light.

the draw that the dark subconsciously holds equal to the lust for pure light.

basically, life, period.

something generic but profound, something easy for any one to take and relate their own idea or life to.

the title is taken from song lyrics off the record.

“every door that i walk through i have been through before, in and out and back again, but i’ve got an open door.”
