Opening with a lullaby vibratoed electric guitar, reminiscent of many sixties radio hits, that mood is mildly diffused with the more expected wood and steel organic thrum of Hayden's acoustic guitar in the song, "Woody". But throughout the short and sweet "Woody", that early sixties pop vibe continues to vibrate from the tremulous six string - no matter how much harmonica or lo-fi indie vocal Hayden can muster, a 40 year old pop lullably feel lurks beneath it all. Nearly always exuding a downbeat melancholy, Hayden's "Woody" is no exception and would fit well alongside Skating Club on your next mixtape/burned CD.
