video: Woodsman "Balance"


When lines are fine, balance helps us navigate our way home, levelling the playing field in order to ensure safety, while constantly hinting that unforeseeable danger is right around the corner. Woodsman know a thing or two about lines, as the Colorado quartet rides a deceptively thin line between technicolor jams and tonal ambiance. Their newest video for "Balance," off the forthcoming Mystery Tape, mines pixel-washes and instructional video footage to create a uber-dimension where focused indulgence and mindful yearning are the figurative "gate keeper" and "key master."

Woodsman will be hitting up Brooklyn this Friday for a show at Monster Island with Ducktails, Wild Nothing and Velvet Davenport. The band will also be jamming at Co-Op 87 Saturday afternoon, and the Sunday Brunch Radio program from 2-4 next Sunday.
