There are vast fields of tall grass and babbling waterways
outside of the city, and you can hear it in Woods’ new folk,
which sounds something like Neil Young fronting The Shins.
“We’ll take the Neil Young things,” says Crane, still
talking at a hundred miles an hour “because of Jeremy’s unique
voice – he, like, sounds his voice in himself, and that’s a
big part of what makes the band sounds so strange, his weird-ass
voice that he’s figured out at some point.
So yeah, I’ll take Neil Young. Love Neil Young, as
a creative force and as a musician, just like the weirdass shit that he was doing
conceptually with his albums, and all of the awesome song
writing. That. Is. Totally.
