Boomkat Product Review:
One of the most arresting bands on Holy Mountain's enviable roster, Wooden Shjips are pretty much at the forefront of contemporary psych and stoner rock. At times they have the minimalist abrasion of a Glenn Branca piece, while at others they sound like a particularly gnarled Black Sabbath, with a deluge of soaring fuzz tones coating their recordings with a phosphorescent gleam. This CD compiles all the early, self-released singles, and is every bit as indispensable as the band's much talked about eponymous debut. Highly recommended.
