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 Crazy Horse and the tightly wound simplicity of and the Velvet Underground. Back To Land, the quartet's follow-up to 2011's "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.
Back To Land is slightly more accessible in tone to their previous efforts, but only in the sense that the band's songwriting has improved.
The CD comes in a wallet housed in a die-cut O-card wallet and is an eye-catching package. As a bonus, the Australian edition features the bonus cut, "These Shadows (Acoustic Version)", not available on any other CD edition.
