I’ve referred to Woodsman as dark and expansive more than once. The Denver group, in turn, refer to nature, Stan Brakhage, and the ’70s improv recordings of Miles Davis. It’s all also implied in their work and aesthetic. The last song we posted was “I Can’t Move,” a percussive, almost poppy drift from the charity compilation Mixtapes For Haiti. You get a pleasant This Heat! feel in “Balance,” here represented by a Trevor Peterson-directed video that weds visual feedback and solitary/one-on-one basketball footage. The track’s from the previously mentioned Mystery Tape EP.
Mystery Tape is out via Lefse. It also houses “When Morning Comes”
