Was it only ever a matter of time before a Woods track, in this case "Suffering Season" off of their 2010 album At Echo Lake, was purloined for something pot-related? Well, we can sit around arguing bitterly about the exploitive nature of using existing, independently-interesting music as a promotional tool, or we can just accept the fact that the Weeds/Woods connection probably made some Hollywood executive very, very happy, if not poop his Armani pants and then scream into his bluetooth headset with joy: "WHO ARE THESE WOODS PEOPLE?! THEIR MUSIC SOUNDS LIKE DRUGS! THIS IS PERFECT, PERFECT." And everyone (including Woods, of course) wins. Except for me. That cutout, shark-eyed version of Mary Louise Parker determinedly riding a scooter towards me is the stuff of night terrors.
Speaking of Woods, this seems like a good opportunity to mention their new tracks, not on their most recent feel-good, warmth and bass-riddled album Sun and Shade. On July 19, Woods will release "Find Them Empty" and "Be There," both online and as a 7" vinyl record. You can listen to "Find Them Empty" where it's streaming over at Pitchfork.
