Wooden Shjips

Back To Land Deluxe LP

eluxe LP version is pressed on opaque green vinyl and packaged in a heavy duty old-style tip-on gatefold jacket with an artworked flood on the pocket (ala Neil Young "On the Beach"). The jacket also features high gloss UV printing and is housed in a deluxe die cut slipcase. A free download coupon is included. Wooden Shjips’ rise to prominence from the psychedelic underground to the rock and roll overground has been a steady sojourn. With each consecutive 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 tightly wound simplicity of Suicide and the Velvet Underground. Back to Land, the quartet’s follow-up to West, is the first Wooden Shjips record to be conceived outside of San Francisco. Ripley Johnson and Omar Ahsanuddin moved to Oregon, where the lush climates became a major influence on the songwriting. The band’s scope expanded to include more earthy, grounded tones, such as the acoustic guitar, without abandoning their modernist psych core
