Seattle locals Ravenna Woods have carved out an existence all unto their own. They have taken the typical Seattle folk-rock sound and mixed with a dash of punk, a pinch of what used to be called math-rock, and thrown in a lot of experimental textures to create a driving and enticing sound that has only remotely been seen in the likes of Maps and Atlases. The band self-released Valley of the Headless Men last year and it is available to stream and to purchase through Bandcamp. They are touring this month in support of Deleted Scenes and will be at the Comet Tavern this Friday, January 20! Be sure to go to their show and watch videos from their August 2011 in-studio here:
