Woods, a beloved Brooklyn psych folk quintet, reacted like many after November’s election: They had to do something. In the months following the election, the band—never the type to get too political before—recorded a response. The resulting six-song album, Love is Love, feels calm and considered, not reactionary. There are moments of doubt, but it never breaks through Woods’ warm, gentle ’70s-tinged tones. Even if you don’t find relief in flowery reassurances, you can take comfort in Woods’ continued growth in mixing jazz, folk, and world music.
