Wooden Shjips- West Album & UK Tour


San Francisco psych-rock band Wooden Shjips recently released their latest full length record on August 16th via their label Thrill Jockey. Entitled West, the seven-track LP marks the band’s first studio effort. The album was recorded at Lucky Cat Studios in San Francisco, CA. Phil Manley served as engineer while Sonic Boom oversaw the album’s mastering at Blanker Unisinn in Brooklyn, NY. Their press release reveals the album’s over riding theme is the American West, and all of the mythology, romanticism, and idealism that it embodies. Definitely worth a listen!
