about

Brooklyn artist Yoh presents "Woods," the second single following "Signs" from his forthcoming solo EP "Holographic" through fellow Brooklyn label Youngbloods. Calling upon instrumental contributions from fellow "Poetic Thrust" bandmate and guitarist Stu Pender, Yoh’s latest singular work demonstrates his rapid fire lyrical prowess in full effect. “Woods” intersects after-hour jazz-and-prose sensibilities with cosmic reception - an ode to experience across our past, present, and future.

“Woods” is the love that can only be expressed as a master watching his students bloom. It is the hope that their teachings can take root, and help its students blossom into great teachers and the most honest form of themselves through self discovery, sacrifice and openness to learning. It is the result of cosmic download and the relinquishing ego. An open heart and ear to the teachings we’ve learned and must still learn."

“Woods” is now available on digital platforms worldwide with “Holographic” available starting August 14th.

lyrics

Quickly I realized what I needed was space,
deduce the reasonings, seductive seasonings,
seduced to a truce with the rabbit I followed,
deathly hollows in hallways, a beautiful fall day,
sipping the tea that brewed, steam on the tooth,
hot on my trail, flame in the wheel,
i’m a fiend for the juice I’m a ghost rider,
chained to the work put the put work in,
yield no results coming up dirt,
make time for the roses,
noses close to the earth,
close to the piety, fire me finally
finishing everything I thought that I had to,
and loving myself.
Loving the level up get a buck
I found a found a money clip,
I was in the woods taking notes from a ghost
you was trying get this,
a little bit of what I really need,
leaves in a cup,
universe screaming through the megaphone when the weather gets rough,
ain’t no bringing sand to the beach,
walls get breached,
Walking on water in a well with a cap on the well
I’m might shell out what i’ve learned if you heed,
peep in the dark,
get it how you live,
I figured at the end of the day that we’re all trying to eat,
6 feet deep for the rest
but rarely do we ever make time for the sleep
i’m a keep, piece of myself for my peace,
heart got metal coat so you can’t steal it
you can feint the funk but you gon feel it,

I found a money clip,
Im deep in the woods upon a cliff,
I wrote another song my,
skin get bit up cause my blood is sweet,
thats what my family say,
I prefer to call it an offering. (x2)

I hold on to tightly to the intangible and get tangled in,
ghostly vines I built this shrine,
its there that I host my best guesses and messes I’m too tired to clean
leaning on pretenses, contextual tension tempers flared and aroused
building climax to bust it down alchemy, how can we?
How can I hold on to everything in the spring in the fall,
winter comes summer comes,
choosing and swooping through falcon eyes, I can call anyone
if anyone hears, if anyone dares to cross the line like T’s,
dot the eyes no surprises light the fire
gotta get it to run it up,
sum it up bum it out,
Pressure comes,
thug it out tough it out no amount,

of what I really need,
leaves in a cup,
universe screaming through a megaphone the weather gets rough,
ain’t no bringing sand to the beach,
walls get breached,
Walking on water in a well with a cap on the well
I’m shell out what i’ve learned if you heed,
peep in the dark,
get it how you live,
I figured at the end of the day that we’re all trying to eat,
6 feet deep for the rest
but rarely do we ever make time for the sleep
i’m a keep, piece of myself for my peace,
heart got metal coat so you can’t steal(steel) it
you can feint the funk but you gon feel it,

I found a money clip,
Im deep in the woods upon a cliff,
I wrote another song my,
skin get bit up cause my blood is sweet,
thats what my family say,
I prefer to call it an offering. (x2)
