Woodstar : ‘Time To Bleed’

For those about to rock, you’re out of luck. Yarns about the genesis of three of these five songs from the hushed Irish maverick five-piece, concern writing trips to the Arabian desert and studios in the muddy fields of Limerick. Certainly the whispered falsetto vocals; defracted, acoustic-leaning sounds and sense of childlike wonder are unlikely to have emerged from the evil metropolis. ‘Time To Bleed’, ‘Sorry Skin’ and their kin are intimate, woozy, creaking, fuzzed-out tales of family, love and sorrow, reminiscent of what might happen if Mercury Rev were to get together with Sparklehorse and a barber shop quartet. With [a][/a] on vocals. Definitely worthy of close attention from those unafraid of a bit of dust, a few stray cobwebs and some glimmers of analogue magic.
