Finalmente. Cinque anni dopo ‘Back To Land’ e la reiterata noia unita allo snervante presenzialismo del Moon Duo, tornano in pompa magna i Wooden Shjips con il nuovo album ‘V’ – mixato da Cooper Crain (Cave, Circuit Des Yeux) – che sarà fuori il 25 maggio via Thrill Jockey. Il disco è anticipato dal singolo ‘Staring At The Sun‘. Velvet Underground per tutti.
Ripley Johnson: “We had huge forest fires just outside of Portland and there was intense haze and layers of ash in the city. I was sitting on my porch every evening, watching ash fall down like snow, the sky looking like it was on fire. It was an apocalyptic feeling. Summer in Portland is usually really chill and beautiful, and we were working on a ‘summer record,’ but the outside world kept intruding on my headspace.”
