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.

Mystic, CT's Slander debuts video for first two singles

Slander's dual signal release was met with a bit of a buzz, getting coverage on a few blogs including Stereogum. Following that burst of success they've released the video for the two singles - a longform black and white video. The video, directed by Ellery Twining, does a good job of bringing the singles to life. Before seeing the video, I was already feeling the retro Fleetwood Mac vibes from the twangy guitars and take-no-prisoners drums. Magnets definitely shines in the forefront, with an especially energetic intro and catchy hooks up the wazoo; from "You wanna be alone" to "I can make you want it" yelped and wailed by frontwoman Julia Farrar. Ghosts takes it down a notch with a slower pace and a less puncuated and more drawn out feeling than Magnets, but the two singles play off each other well. - Hillary Anderson
