A Tonevendor exclusive until Feb. 29! Debut album from new UK stratosphere rockers Aspen Woods (who shares a member with the legendary SECRET SHINE!) Aspen Woods debut 70 minute 10 track debut LP will be released on Razorblade records (home of Bristol shoegazers SECRET SHINE and liverpudlian acoustic artist VINCENT CALLAN). Covering subjects ranging from the ritual sacrifice of Princess Diana in 'Passing of a Moon Goddess' to the unbreakable mother and son bond in 'The Witch's Son', the woods have recorded as much of the album as possible live using traditional recording techniques, to capture the guts and spirit of their live shows much the same way as the bands influences would have done so in the hazy 60s and 70s. Latchman Manghat (whose previous works include the celebrated great lost HEADS psychedelic album and Julian Cope favourite 'At last' that was 'er never... lost!) at Rolling Rex Studios has engineered and expertly, painstakingly co-produced the album with the band. For the Woods its as much about the journey as well the destination, just like how you choose to live your life - there are too many people prepared to step on too many people to get to where they want - only to realize their not happy when they get there. Getting where you want is nothing without putting in the hard graft to feel the satisfaction. People want things to easy in this day an age, without being prepared to work for it or care about who they step on the way. Homing their psychedelic crafts on a fruitful Bristolian live scene, the band have played memorable psychedelic hypnotic wig out sets at the legendary Espionage club and the world famous Cube cinema (check the live footage over at www.aspenwoods.co.uk) and have supported a wide variety of bands from Italian space rockers UFO Mammut to Japan's instrumental wonders MONO.
