Our love for the minimal, droning kraut/psych rock sound of Wooden Shjips (and of their side project, Moon Duo) is an undoubted fact. The band was formed in 2003 in San Francisco by bandleader Ripley Johnson with the purpose of bringing together alternative musicians, who don’t seek fame but are interested in pure creation.
On the 11th of November Wooden Shjips are dropping their new album called “Back to Land” under Thrill Jockey and we are looking forward to it a lot. Listen to the first quick teaser track “Back To Land”.
