WOVEN BONES: I’ve Gotta Get: 7”

Nov 24, 2010

Much better than their LP, which was good. But the two songs on this single have more punch and focus, and are less droney. I like the surf-style guitars, which at times recalls bands like Crystal Stilts, but more noisy and less refined. The title track moves at a good pace, with a solid low end that holds the mess together, while “Hey Kid” asks, “Where did we go wrong?” No idea. But I do think this is a good record, and if you’re curious about these guys, this record is the best place to start. Hoping their next LP is as good as this.
