Video: The Woolen Men “Hold It Up”

by @thoughtontracks


We are big fans of New York imprint Woodsist around these parts. For my money, the label has consistently churned out some of the best pop rock in the country over the last couple of years. The latest offering comes in the form of a self-titled LP from Pacific Northwest trio The Woolen Men. It’s an accessible batch of guitar-driven toe tappers that play on the snare-heavy sounds of late ’60s surf rock, occasionally delving into restrained punk.

Last week, The Woolen Men released a psychedelic new video for lead single “Hold It Up.” The seizure-enducing, black and white affair was produced by Portland artist Jeffrey Kriksciun. The band recently embarked upon a nationwide tour, with dates scheduled through early June. Check out a full list of dates below, and don’t miss these cats when they roll through the Midwest in late May.
