The lo-fi thing has gotten old, but that doesn't mean every lo-fi band should suffer even if their genre has grown over-saturated and mediocre. I like "Find Them Empty" by Woods: Subtle tune, Count Five keys, decent voices and psych guitar.
Woods will be on tour this Winter, though Philadelphia's off the leg. All info is courtesy of Force Field PR.

On June 14th of this year, WOODS released their 6th full-length album, Sun & Shade, on their own Woodsist record label. Recorded Winter to Winter, 2010-2011, Sun & Shade features a helping hand from west coast brother, Glenn Donaldson (Skygreen Leopards, Art Museums) and is the first full album recorded at the new Woodsist Headquarters in the small upstate town of Warwick, NY.
"Woods is a two-headed dog asleep on the porch & a butterfly on
the windowsill... a Janus, a Gemini & a screen door. The sun won't
fade & the earworms will not leave, but the jams go on TOO long for
the girl in the back who wonders if her friends are at another bar.
Still, the ballads always make her cry. Woods is up there relaying the
Woods-feel: Folk-rock, fuzz, tambourines, tapes & raw lunch pulled
straight from the yard. Pop songs & other things: Sun & Shade." -Glenn Donaldson
