Woods got noticed thanks to a cover of Neon Indian’s song “Mind, Drips,” which led to a stint on tour with Sunset, a new project from experimental musician Bill Baird of Sound Team. Baird is producing Woods’ full-length debut, which will happen some time this fall. In the meantime, though, the Austin resident has released “Moon Rocks,” a limited-edition EP that’s drawing comparisons to some pretty big names, including Townes Van Zandt and Bon Iver. (The EP is available here.)
Free song “Sparks” has that dusty troubadour feel, thanks to acoustic guitar and reverb-saturated vocals. There’s something powerful and desolate about the song, which bodes well for Woods’ planned full-length.
