Wooden Shjips Wooden Shjips, Vol. 1 Vinyl. It was only a matter of time until the psychedelic revolution filtered its way through San Francisco once again. But by the time experimentalists Wooden Shjips came upon the Bay Area's shores, their version of trance-rock had been filtered through decades of outsider art, noisemaking groundbreakers, and a new breed of sociopolitical apathy that all come teeming through the artful dissonance of VOL. 1. Echo-effected vocals play unwilling narrator to the bizarre mélange of garage, Kraut rock, chaotic feedback, and occasional tongue-in-cheek tugs of war with something approximating accessibility. (Dig the presumably knowing "Whole Lotta Love" rip-off riff buried underneath the ironically titled "Dance, California"'s scratching and squalling.) "Shrinking Moon For You" and "Clouds Over Earthquake" do more than upset norms and punish eardrums, setting hypnotically shoegazey waves of rhythm and noise in motion, and hinting that, despite their best efforts, Wooden Shjips might be leaning toward something much more languid in the future.
