Rose City Band
Summerlong

Another new project for fans of Ripley Johnson and Wooden Shjips, Rose City Band presents its debut album Summerlong. While it contains Johnson’s shimmering, psychedelic guitar lines, what’s novel about RCB is the introduction of instruments normally associated with country music, such as mandolins, banjo and the heavenly sounds of the lap steel guitar.

Wooden Shjips
Vol.1

And it’s freaky … deaky … Mc … deluxe. Verily, this 21st Century has produced few bands freakier or deekier than San Franciscan ultra-psychsters Wooden Shjips. 2008’s ‘Vol. 1’ was the first that many of us heard from a group who, more than a decade on from this album’s release, have become something of psych-rock royalty. Collecting some of Wooden Shjips’ early vinyl-only releases on one record, this set is notably grittier and more lo-fi than the polished vistas of their later work. ‘Vol. 1’ is not dissimilar to what Thee Oh Sees were doing around the same time.

Wooden Shjips
V

In which the Shjips, according to the press release at least, trade in some of their trademark hypno-guitar drone for a more laid-back sound. Born out of contemplative takes on the various political and ecological madnesses of last summer, 'V' is intended as an antidote to current travails, "a respite from the insanity". Get in early enough and said respite can even be had on a limited white vinyl version (while stocks last, yada yada).

Moon Duo
Occult Architecture Vol. 1

Part One of a two part record by Moon Duo, the motorik duo of Sanae Yamada and Wooden Shjips man Ripley Johnson. You know how this game works by now: drum machines grooving endlessly beneath a constantly shifting carpet of fuzzed-guitar. Yum! Occult Architecture Vol. 1 is the dark and wintery part of the pair. Out on Sacred Bones.

Back To Land

'Back To Land' is Norm faves Wooden Shjips' fourth album. There's something on here for everything, combining the hushjed vocals of Alan Vega, with the sjun-dappled atmospheres of West Coast psychedelia, and sjomething approaching krautrock's insistent chug.

West

The third shjalbum from Wooden Shjips drops via Thrill Jockey. West finds the San Fran stoners on fine form. These tracks are all hypnotic Kraut grooves, spacious textures and spiralling guitar playing. Occasionally a voice emerges from the fog to mumble convincingly in your ear. It’s all quite Grateful Dead, and who can say no to that? Good shjtuff.

Wooden Shjips

They've got repetition in their music and they're never gonna lose it! Taking cues from The Fall's musical manifesto, the doomy psych rock of The Doors, the kosmische of NEU!, Suicide's gritty synth punk and the fuzz-rock of Spacemen 3, Wooden Shjips' take on psychedelia is incredibly hypnotic. The grooves will bury themselves into your head for years to come.
