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.

P.S. Eliot Wrap Up Reunion Tour at PhilaMOCA Sept. 19 & 20

Katie and Allison Crutchfield received their inaugural taste of musical success in Birmingham, AL with the first band that they formed in high school called The Ackleys; however, after its members went off to different colleges, the group eventually disbanded, leading the twin sisters to their next musical endeavor, P.S. Eliot. The feminist pop-punk quartet, which also included Will Granger and Katherine Simonetti, prolifically wrote and recorded music before calling it quits in 2011. Of course, you most likely already know that Katie Crutchfield has gone to gain fame recording under the moniker Waxahatchee, and Allison has too with her band Swearin’. Earlier this year, P.S. Eliot announced that they would be reuniting to tour and release a 50-track compilation album, 2007-2011, via Don Giovanni Records, which features remasters of 2009’s Introverted Romance In Our Troubled Minds and 2011’s Sadie, as well as their 2010 Living In Squalor EP, demos, and home recordings. Well, they have been on tour for the past week or so in support of their latest release, and will be wrapping it up with an exciting two-night run of sold-out shows at PhilaMOCA, starting this evening with labelmate Moor Mother and Boston’s Fleabite and concluding the following evening with Philly friends Radiator Hospital and Pouty. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $12 (Sold Out), All Ages - Alexis V.
