Jesse Woods - "Danger In The Dancehall"

Jesse Woods, the young gentleman discovered out of his Austin garage by a passing by Alan Palomo of Neon Indian, melted our loins back in 2010 with his sparse and stirring acoustic guitar-centered EP Moon Rocks. Woods' carefully chosen words hit like a fist to the gut on tracks like "Sparks," where he remarks simply and poignantly: "Wish I could take your eyes with me, show you all the things I see / My favorite Mexican bar, open air, and big bright stars." Woods, it now appears, is readying his debut LP, Get Your Burdens Lifted. The first track, "Danger In The Dancehall," appeared recently over on Rolling Stone, where Woods riffed on the meaning behind the track: "You're young and everything is in front of you, but you're getting older and the highs start getting higher making the lows feel lower, so everything seems kind of messed up. You've got this new found freedom and the whole world at your fingertips and no idea what to do with it."
