New videos from Wooden Shjips and Sic Alps

Sic Alps recently unleashed this minute-long acid trip for the Breadhead B-side, "1/2 Rabbit Sandwich with Fries." The 7" is out now on Drag City. (via Raven Sings the Blues) Wooden Shjips' new Patrick Whalen-directed video for "Crossing" captures the band performing live from what feels like a thousand different angles. It's the latest clip for a song from the band's West LP.

Photos/Review: Wooden Shjips debut ‘West’ in the right place @ Bottom of the Hill 8/18/11

For the past few months, a press copy of West has been the only CD in my car. I've probably cycled through it at least fifty times.

Psychedelic music seems to have become more accessible in the local environment as of late, and, with their new record, Wooden Shjips' popularity has surpassed its former crowd and extended into new audiences. The ratio of bearded, long-haired folk to young, dancing girls [...]

Wooden Shjips – “Lazy Bones”

Wooden Shjips – "Lazy Bones" Wooden Shjips are releasing West on August 16th on Thrill Jockey, and Stereogum recently premiered "Lazy Bones." According to the label: The overriding theme for the album (as indicated by the title) is the American West, and all of the mythology, romanticism, and idealism that it embodies. The band members grew up on the East Coast, so for a long time the history and literature of the West was an abstraction and a fascination for them. Part of the allure of the West, which is part of the myth, is the concept of Manifest Destiny, [...]
