Music Montag: Fred Woods

by James Glazebrook

Fred Woods

What’s Fred Woods looking at? Oh, the video for his stripped-back acoustic number “Schools”. Or maybe past that to an embed of his first album DOCUMENTA, released earlier this year. He looks a little annoyed, but I’m sure won’t mind if we point out that physical and digital copies can be bought from his Bandcamp, which also contains details of his upcoming Berlin tour, kicking off with a May 4th show at Gelegenheiten. And his music? Let’s just say that if haunt folk is going to become A Thing, then the Canadians are going to be kings and queens of the sub-genre, with Fred Woods first on the throne of knotted tar-coated tree branches.
