Starting next Thursday, Wooden Shjips is taking over four of our favorite intimate venues in California for space rock that will make your mind numb and your ears ring. Their fourth full length LP Back to Land was released back in October of last year, but the San Francisco four piece is still on the road in support of the release. The Wooden Shjips formula hasn’t changed much since their 2011 release West that garnered positive vibes and reviews from us here. Slow burners, endless trips, and six to eight tracks that could make any trip up or down Highway 1 in California an existential experience. It’s not to say Back to Land isn’t a success, but it’s definitely more of the same and that’s a totally good trip for most fans of the band.
Wooden Shjips will be bringing Back to Land to some of our favorite venues across California. Tickets are still available for these shows at the links below. We’ll have a full review of The Echo show a few days after the event.
