The election of Donald Trump upended many American lives, not least those of Brooklyn band Woods. In 2016, they released City Sun Eater in the River of Light, took their show on the road, and planned to take time off afterward. But the regime change galvanized them to act. Instead of a protest record, they designed their 10th full-length, Love Is Love, to offer more comfort than catharsis. The quintet have always specialized in a sylvan brand of psych folk, and that hasn’t changed, but they’ve added the distinctive textures of Ethiopian jazz, notably on the 10-minute “Spring Is in the Air,” where contemplative brass and hypnotic percussion meet rolling waves of wah-wah guitar, like something from Buda Musique’s monumentally soul-soothing Ethiopiques series. Mission accomplished. KATHY FENNESSY
