Wooden Shjips

I just discovered this San Francisco-based crew through a piece in a recent issue of The Wire. Stripped-down, primitive psychedelic garage trance rock'n'roll - love it! So simple and pure as to sound almost devotional.

Wooden Shjips

It takes me back to the golden age of Spacemen 3 and Loop (both of whom I was lucky enough to see more than once), although the Shjips apparently had never listened to them. The similarity in sound doesn't bother me at all - can't get enough of this kind of thing.

Quite a few of their tracks can be heard here. And yes, it is spelled like that.
