November 2013
Wooden Shjips
"Back to Land
"
mp3

Hailing from San Francisco, psychedelic group Wooden Shjips, has just released their newest album Back to Land. The album brings together a sound crafted from inspirations that range from psychedelic music to classic rock.

The album is an entire trip in itself.  One can hear hints of 80s music, classic rock, and modern garage rock styles in the record, but they always resolve back to their classic psychedelic sound. With tracks like “In The Roses,” which brings a very spacey, low volume vocals, and a lo-fi sound that is not too cheesy or under produced. to “Ghouls,” which is a much faster, much more psychedelic rock sounding song that takes influences from classic rock guitar chords, while still utilizing classic psychedelic synthesizers.

Most songs on the album carry a jam-band sound, without becoming too abstract or getting too carried away. And in some cases, the music is so vast in genre diversity, one is surprised at the resulting sound, such as in the track, “These Shadows”, which starts off with an extremely catchy intro guitar riff and carries a vague David Bowie meets Velvet Underground sound.

“Back to Land” is a great piece of work that utilizes the potential of each member of Wooden Shjips effectively and thoroughly.

Most importantly, “Back to Land” is an experimentation of how far the psychedelic genre can stretch while still successfully staying true to its roots.


This is a preview of the new Deli charts - we are working on finalizing them by the end of 2013.

Sorority Noise to continue making noise after two members depart

Cameron Boucher, vocalist of Hartford indie punk quartet Sorority Noise, announced yesterday that Kevin O’Donnell and Jason Rule, the band’s bassist and drummer, respectively, would be leaving the band. In his statement, Boucher calls O’Donnell and Rule “two of the most talented dudes I know and the best rhythm section in the world,” attesting that all four bandmates remain close friends following the split. Rule later released his own statement citing that aside from some personal reasons, he and O’Donnell had no interest in moving forward stylistically with Sorority Noise. Boucher and Scuff, the band’s guitarist, plan to continue making music and working on a new Sorority Noise LP, while O’Donnell and Rule will likely take this time to focus on their band Queen Moo. – Jake Reed (@jakejreed)
