"Wisdom comes with age, so it’s no surprise that Woods have grown more sage in the twelve years since they formed, expanding from sylvan drum circles into increasingly elaborate, transcendent psychedelia."- Pitchfork

Love Is Love, the band’s 10th full-length album, was written and recorded immediately following the 2016 election, but, like so much of the best music written in response to times like these, it is not strictly about it. “Love Is Love was written and recorded in the two months immediately following the election, but it’s not a record borne entirely of angry, knee-jerk reaction to what America is becoming. Instead, it’s a meditation on love, and on what life means now. Taking cues from last year’s City Sun Eater In The River Of Light, it feels very much like a record made from living, shoulder to shoulder, in a major city: weaving psychedelic swirls of guitar between languid horns reminiscent of the best Ethiopian jazz—Love is Love is a distinctly New York record. It is a document of protest in uncertain times and an open-hearted rejection of cynicism in favour of emotional honesty. It is bright, and then, unexpectedly, a little dark sometimes too. We argued about what we thought would happen. We preached understanding. We advocated for anger. Some people said that we’d at least get some incredible art; other people said that was a small view of a world we were quickly realizing we’d misunderstood. Everyone was right. Everyone was wrong. Art made in precarious times matters as much as we let it matter.” - Sam Hockley-Smith
