Robert Frost predicted correctly: the Woods are lovely, dark and deep. Especially on their new album, Winter Hours, which is the most enjoyable cold 'n' gloomy record to come out of -30C temperatures. The Saskatoon band prides itself on melancholy pacing and weeping vocals, capturing a sort of barren psychological landscape that makes you want to curl up in fleece pajamas with a loved one in front of the fire. All The Money I Had Is Gone is so darn catchy you'll be singing it even if the economy takes another bite out of your investments. And Nancy warms things up before they get too frigid, taking you on a foot-stomping journey through life and death. Who thought depressing Prairie winters could lead to such a musical masterpiece?
