WOODEN SHJIPS – WEST CD & LP

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

WOODEN SHJIPS – WEST   ...

For a band that thrives on eternal repetition, Wooden Shjips have made some impressive strides toward approachability from album to album, and West is by far their biggest leap yet. On previous records, the band would be content to ride a single chord long enough to turn your brain into goo. But the tracks on West are comparatively compact (the longest top out around seven minutes), and they often come equipped with riffs and melodies that don't sound too terribly far-removed from classic-rock radio fare. The recording itself is warmer and cleaner than anything they've done. Most of the songs blast off into glorious solos near the end. I'm pretty sure I heard a tambourine on at least one song. In short, it's the first Wooden Shjips record that your stoner uncle might not hate.
