Woo When The Past Arrives on LP
Woo is brothers Mark and Clive Ives. Emboldened by the success of the reissue of their 1989 album It's Cosy Inside, Mark and Clive had a listen to hundreds of previously unreleased tracks recorded in the '70s and '80s to assemble their first new record in two decades, When The Past Arrives. With comparisons to Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Animal Collective, Cluster, and Brian Eno, Woo's profile in the world of atemporal music has been growing for years. For the lucky few who know, like Fela or Neu!, Woo has their own instantly recognizable vibrantly pulsing sound, a quiet dynamic of comfort and contentment. When The Past Arrives is a collection of deceptively airy jams, addictive and crystalline. Woo two on Drag City/Yoga is a barrel-dive over the waterfall of their unheard history; why these tracks didn't see the light of day in the '70s, '80s, '90s or aughts is beyond us. When the Past Arrives is now the present – a gift for your ears!
