Woods w/Javontaes 

When: Mon., Dec. 12, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $8
As electronic music gradually starts to take hold of pop music as it did in the ’90s, indie rock has become a nation divided against itself: folksy sing-alongs vs. electroclash dance parties, analog tape vs. digital discs, Biggie vs. ’Pac. Well, maybe not so much that last one. But while seemingly every band in Brooklyn is trying to figure out how to shoehorn a drum machine into all of their jangly pop songs, we can always count on indie rock's more hippy-dippy side to bring the folk rock. Woods, who released their third record on their own label earlier this year, is about as close to keeping the peace as we may get. This is, after all, a band with a “tape-effects technician.” Though the jangly lo-fi folk pop from their past two efforts is still the focus of Sun and Shade, Woods isn't afraid to dip into psychedelia, as evidenced in the seven- and nine-minute instrumental freak-out jams that punctuate the new record.
