Woodbine - Woodbine (1999)


Last night I worked for 13 hours, doing lights, sound, and security at the music venue employs me.

Now I'm fucking beat, and this is the perfect music for an exhausted Sunday afternoon.

Psychedelic, relaxed, folky, organic, rich. These are all good words to describe this album.

I don't know a thing about this group, except that their second album is just about as good as this one, and that they're on the lovely Domino Records label.

Anyways, this is a nice little gem. I don't think that anyone will dislike it.

If anyone knows anything about the group, leave it in the comments.

The U.K. indie trio Woodbine came together in 1995 when Rob Healey (guitar/keyboards) left pre-"Brimful of Asha" Cornershop behind for something more personally fulfilling. He hooked up with chanteuse Susan Dillane and guitarist Graeme Swindon to form Woodbine. Domino Records offered them a deal during their first 18 months and Woodbine prepped themselves for a debut album. Then nothing happened. By 1998, they'd saved enough money for studio time. Royal Trux's Neil Hagerty and Jennifer Herrema mixed the album and Woodbine's dreamy slowcore sound came together. European tours with Smog, Cat Power, and Broadcast were great experiences, and the single "Tricity Tiara" (2000) did moderately well among the indie charts. In 2002, Woodbine finally released their self-titled debut on Domino. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi
