The Woods CS
The first offering from Electric Jellyfish in their three-piece incarnation. Influenced by everything from Glenn Branca to Neil Young, title track The Woods opens with eerie guitar noise and soon explodes into a country-gone-sideways march. It is a nine-minute epic about deceit, betrayal, and revenge, with creaking guitars and a continually intense rhythm to match its dark lyrical theme. B-side Mr. Innocent Gun continues the rhythmic intensity, but shifts towards a stark repetitive minimalism. With continual patterns, the changes are barely perceptible until they transform back to the way they started, producing a continuous flow throughout.
