Wooden Shjips’ rise to prominence from the psychedelic underground to the rock and roll overground has been a steady sojourn. With each new release, the band has found new ways of transforming heady psychedelic rock into minimalist masterpieces, bridging the gap between the woozy freeness of Les Rallizes Denudes and Crazy Horse and the simplicity of Suicide and the Velvet Underground

Wooden Shjips, are from the bay-area of San Francisco, the quartet led by Moon Duo’s Ripley Johnson, release their fifth album, V., via the stalwart label Thrill Jockey Records today. As the shadows cast begin to lengthen out here on the east, this new disc’s heavy dose of warm shoegaze psych is a more than welcome companion. Embodying the psychic spectrum of a nighttime desert drive, a lost weekend in the valley of beyond, the band alchemizes atmospheric ripples of ragged glory guitar, sorcerous waves of synth, free jazz skronk, and blissed out boogies. It’s a summer-tinged collection, emitting its freak out transmissions across high noons and blood moons alike
