When reviewing Woven Bones’ debut release In and Out and Back Again, I noted how this psycho-sounding pyschedelic rock band could use a second song. “I’ve Gotta Get,” isn’t that song. It follows the band’s established formula of evil on top of evil vocals fronting otherwise innocent, beach party jams. Which, for now is fine. “I’ve Gotta Get” is the band’s first release for their new label, the Subpop imprint Hardly Art, and maybe some of their customers haven’t had the chance to immerse themselves in the Woven Bones sound. Next album, however, a new expression of this style would be much appreciated.
Woven Bones’ I’ve Gotta Get 7″ is out now on Hardly Art Records.
