I was doing a little music reading/researching on this rainy afternoon and came across the Woodsist Records website. Woodsist may not be entirely responsible for the whole lo-fi, rustic sound that has been creaking around the indie blogosphere for the past year or so, but they are responsible for backing some of the best new bands around, including Wavves, Real Esate, Ganglians, and Kurt Vile. While browsing the label’s blog, I discovered this YouTube video of Real Estate playing live at The Jackpot in our hometown, Lawrence, KS.
On another note, this may or may not be a trend related to the Woodsist label itself, but the artists have some of the coolest album covers around. Check out a few of them below…
