Baby Woodrose Release New Single in “Open Doors” Video; Freedom out Sept. 16

Danish garage-psych masters Baby Woodrose release their seventh LP, Freedom, in September via Bad Afro Records. The Lorenzo Woodrose-led outfit have released a couple compilations in the last few years, but their last proper album was 2012’s excellent Third Eye Surgery (review here), which found Woodrose and company expanding their sonic palette to find a rare balance between lush layers of keys and a still-accessible underlying garage structure. Given their past work, I expect Freedom to be nothing but another step forward, and so consider it high among my most anticipated albums for the rest of 2016. In short, I’m dying to hear it.

The band, who were also recently announced as taking part in Bad Afro‘s 20th anniversary party in September (info here) alongside Telstar Sound Drone and Narcosatanicos and will have a limited-run 7″ single out to mark that occasion, have given a sampling of what Freedom might have in store in a new video for “Open Doors,” the first single from the record. In my looking forward to the new release, I had Third Eye Surgery on yesterday, and “Open Doors” does indeed work in the same sphere somewhat in terms of its overall approach — as it invariably would — but I wouldn’t necessarily count on it to represent the full breadth of the impending offering (the label feels the same, apparently) as Baby Woodrose always tend to have a trick up their collective sleeve.

Video for “Open Doors” follows here, with more info off the PR wire from Bad Afro.

Baby Woodrose – Open Doors

Open Doors is the first new Baby Woodrose song since the Third Eye Surgery album came out in 2012. It’s also the first single from the upcoming album Freedom due out September 16th on Bad Afro Records. Baby Woodrose is an iconic band on the Danish psych scene who released their debut album Blows Your Mind back in 2001 and Freedom will be their 7th album. Open Doors is the sound of summer and may not really represent the upcoming album that contains a wide range of harder psychedelic sounds.
