Artist: WOODEN SHJIPS
Title: Dos
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"How many music bloggers does it take to change a lightbulb? None, computer screens are backlit. Here we have a WOODEN SHJIPS record the world saw coming-not titled II, Sophomore, or Second, but Dos. The group maintains its strident pace like a silverfish rave in perfectly folded bedsheets, with more bounce per ounce as life goes jogging with bopping heads and digging heels. Five numbers whose style might fit as cozily at La Cave in 1968 as at Ibiza in 1988. Natural loops with just enough vocals take you where the khakis and the cut-offs play together. Dos sounds off as the inauguration speech of a group accepting the minimalist psych bop crown that once adorned the likes of Neu and Loop. If possible, their brand of whipping fuzz hooks have gotten groovier. Wooden Shjips debut album and various singles have established them as one of the best psych bands to inhabit this earthly realm. LP version to follow." -Holy Mountain

"Wooden Shjips are from San Francisco, but the concentrated ferocity of the freakouts on their two very-underground releases-a white-label ten-inch EP (the band gave away the first 300 copies) and a clear-vinyl single ("Dance, California")-arrives via the 70s Germanic-guitar lunacy of Guru Guru and the confrontational repetition of VU."-David Fricke, Rolling Stone.

"WOODEN SHJIPS, a quartet from San Francisco heavily influenced by the experimentalism of psychedelia, classical minimalism, and garage rock excess, started as an experiment in rhythmic primitivism and group improvisation. The current roster brings a more structured rock approach to its performances, utilizing a traditional lineup of drums, bass, organ, guitar, and vocals.

Title: Contact
Format: 12
Label: Mexican Summer
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"This release is brand a new slab from SFs incomparable Wooden Shjips. They are a modern day answer to space rockers like Hawkwind, F/i, or just the good parts of Van der Graaff Generator. This band helped to kick off the modern small-press vinyl revival with their debut 10"EP (now a sought-after collectors piece) and eking out limited releases one at a time since 2005. For this release the band has cooked up a two-song EP of colossal proportions. Contact is a cover of a Serge Gainsbourg classic, made famous by Brigitte Bardot. The Shjips update with their patented thousand yard psych-cosmos stare, transposing the originals freakbeat tendencies with a Krautrock bassline and a transcendental wander thatll put you in the zone, every time. Once there, chill out even harder to the EZ Version of original I Hear the Vibrations, is slower, grander, heavier, and dreamier, and takes full advantage of the 12" format for better fidelity and a truly blissful listening experience." - Mexican Summer.

Title: Dance, California/Clouds Over Earthquake
Format: 7"
Label: Sick Thirst
Country: USA
Price: $5.50
"...tight-wound repeato psych guitar raunch with spoony (maybe even imaginary) percussion, surprisingly Rev-like keys, and vocals buried under burning driftwood. Its a nice one." -Byron Coley, Wire. "...blissful lo-fi space rock meditations in line with Hawkwind, F/i, and a less amphetamized Comets on Fire...a sounding board for musical ideas that are immensely satisfying..." -Doug Mosurak, Dusted. "...Wooden Shjips seem to have their wagon hitched to a post psychedelic/punk damaged Krautrock environ that just not enough people are astute enough to homestead." -Tom Lax, Siltblog. "Intense, layered, guitar acid-wash motorbike rock from a San Francisco act who, with one record, are now one of my favorite bands on the planet circa 2006. Imagine an ear-blowing cross between Suicide, White Light/White Heat Velvet Underground, the guy that did that "Get Stoned Ezy with the Afflicted Man" record and some nut with a tape loop machine, and youve got Wooden Shjips on this wide-grooved psychedelic head trip." -Agony Shorthand .

Title: West
Format: LP
Label: Thrill Jockey
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"It is easy to see why these would appeal to Wooden Shjips, as their music lends itself to exploration. It is both transformative and transporting, the sum being far greater than its parts. The steady driving rhythms are the elliptical motion machine driven by the often thick and distorted guitar lines, melodic and boundless. Where they may lead cannot be anticipated but following them is exhilarating. It is all about getting there, the destination, while the experience of getting there is an adventure. It is the guitar lines that guide both the listener and the band on the literal and metaphorical journey into the vastness. The ghostly vocals, obscured by dense layers of instruments surrounding them, are alluring with their airy mystery. This elusive quality further draws the listener in, while they attempt to grasp at their meaning. While indebted to both the psych music of the 60s and mid-70s, electric Neil Young, and even the induced travels of Spacemen 3, the Wooden Shjips music is modern and in every way their own. West is an epic journey to the edge and beyond." -Thrill Jockey
