Wooden Shjips, longtime leaders of the contemporary psychedelic movement, expand their sound with ‘V.’.
On their fifth album the quartet of Ripley Johnson (Moon Duo), Omar Ahsanuddin, Dusty Jermier and Nash Whalen augment their already rich sound with laid back, classic summer songs. Inspired by the tumult of the modern world and the desire to offer a contrasting vision of peace, the band have created a record that filters their trademark hypnotic grooves through an optimistic lens, resulting in music that is bright and vital.
‘V.’ was recorded at Type Foundry by Jason Powers (The Decemberists, Moon Duo, Scout Niblett) and mixed by Cooper Crain (Cave, Bitchin Bajas, Circuit des Yeux).
Wooden Shjips have clearly cemented themselves as leaders of the contemporary psychedelic movement and have remained consistent top- sellers.
