Two kings of the indie dancefloor unite for a warm, timeless take on 20th century pop and rock
Album Review: Wooden Shjips - 'West'
Down'n'dirty space rock
But it’s impossible not to bow down to ‘West’, the third album proper from San Francisco troupe Wooden Shjips. From the visceral splurge of ‘Lazy Bones’ to the laser-guided grooves of ‘Flight’, each looping riff is hammered into submission until it stretches out for miles and miles. As long as he keeps on being this magnificent, Mr Ripley can be as avaricious as he damn well pleases.
