Music I Liked And Didn't - 12/18/07 - 12/21/07
WOODEN SHJIPS: Loose Lips / Start To Dreaming 7” (Sub Pop) - For their latest 7” blast, the Wooden Shjips have moved up to the big time with Sub Pop. The A-Side’s “Loose Lips” is a tasty dose of chugging spacerock that features an outstanding solo by guitarist Erik "Ripley" Johnson. “Start To Dreaming” is an equally killer, but slightly more old school psychedelic jam. While there’s certainly nothing groundbreaking about the simple sounds of the Wooden Shjips, the appeal of their updated interpretation of classic psych jamming forms can’t be denied. This is another crowd pleaser from the Wooden Shjips, for sure!
Note - The picture of the Wooden Shjips above, is from their 3/29/07 show at the Hemlock Tavern in San Francisco, which was one of the best live shows I saw in '07!
