Woodsman EP gets 7.7 rating on Pitchfork

Well, alright! Hows about that? Pitchfork has its sights set on Colorado again this morning. Specifically: Woodsman garnered a 7.7 rating from the site for its new Mystery Tape EP. Aside from being a bit stereotypical from a geographical standpoint ("The instrumental psych-leaning quartet Woodsman hail from Denver, an urban setting in a part of the U.S. where wilderness is abundant. You can imagine these guys know a thing or two about being in the backcountry"), replete with a semi-forced forest simile ("Their latest release, the Mystery Tape EP, is drenched in the kind of sleepless, nocturnal dread you might feel while lost in the forest"), the write-up is pretty favorable -- and like we said before, you just can't beat this kind of exposure.
