Shouldn’t need much in the way of introductions here, I’ve shared sounds from these freaks in the past, so I guess you will know where you are getting into.Feeling your day just isn’t spacey enough? Is there a lack of drone in your life? We can answer your needs, with our stream of the fourth studio album from Wooden Shjips, San Francisco’s pre-eminent exponents of the the best possible use of a couple of chords.Guitarist Ripley Johnson tells us: “For Back to Land, we decided to look back a little bit, to let our childhood influences, mostly classic rock, seep into the sound of the album. Part of that came from moving into a proper home for the first time in years, in a new city (Portland), and getting all of my old records out of storage. Something about winter in the northwest encourages self-reflection, introspection, so that played a bigger part in the process as well.”Despite the instropection, though, we think there’s a brightness to his new record: whatever Johnson’s self-reflection, the music here is outward looking, without ever losing touch with the Shjips’ psychedelic roots.
