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.

New Music Video: "Crickets" - Shorty boy-boy

Multi-instrumentalist Josh Pannepacker has been lending out his drumming skills over the last few years to notable acts like Streetwalkers, Sun Airway, and now Cheerleader. We first encountered Pannepacker as mastermind and frontman for Shorty boy-boy. Well, he has a new/old music video (which was actually shot two years ago) that he wanted to share for his track, "Crickets," which you can check out below. The psyched-out footage was edited and shot by Jon Applebaum, with help from Kevin Howley. (Photo by Grace Dickinson)

The Woolen Men + Cool Ghouls + Dogheart at Mississippi 7.29

Whenever you see The Woolen Men appear on a bill you can count on it being a killer show. Not just because of their own aptitude for producing first-rate garage slacker-pop jams, but also because they keep very good company. July 29 at Mississippi Studios the guys are hanging out with Dogheart and San Francisco based Cool Ghouls for a night of bouncy garage rock and crunchy guitars. Dogheart is a new band on the scene who runs with knockabout bands like The Shivas and Mister Tang, but takes a more polished and subdued approach to the Portland-garage sound. Cool Ghouls will fill in the rough-and-tumble role that Dogheart will be familiar with; their brand of R&B infused swinging rock and roll is reminiscent of early Strange Boys with a twist of psych rock texture. This lineup will get you so jiggy Will Smith would offer you a solemn nod of approval.

A Sunny Day in Glasgow w/Pattern is Movement & Myrrias at JB's July 27

A Sunny Day in Glasgow released their first album in four years, the Jeff Zeigler-produced Sea Went Absent, earlier this week via Lefse Records, and this evening, they’ll headline a triad of local artists that know how to push the envelope. The six-piece develops an ethereal state of affairs, capturing soft siren-esque vocals combined with floating layers of instrumentation, pieces of keys/synth, strings percussion, guitar etc., fitting them together to form a beautiful musical portrait that somehow slightly drifts out there yet, for the most part, remains within reach. On a similar note, the experimental-pop pairing of Andrew Thiboldeaux and Chris Ward, a.k.a. Pattern is Movement, delivers its intricately groovy, multi-instrumental R&B, fusing a variety of musical textures while the end product appears seamless. Myrrias a newly formed quartet, which includes Mikele Edwards (Arc in Round), Amy Harkanson (Downtown Club), Casey Bell (Break It Up), and Emily Robb (Lantern), opens the show weaving together vocals with a darker edge, industrial instrumental tone. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $14, 21+ - Michael Colavita
