Release Date:09/13/2011;Notes:Wooden Shjips stand at the forefront of modern psychedelic rock and present, West their first album for Thrill Jockey. The over riding 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. It is easy to see why these would appeal to Wooden Shjips, as their music lends itself to exploration. It is both transformative and transporting, the sum being far greater than it's parts. The steady driving rhythms are the elliptical motion machine driven by the often thick and distorted guitar lines, melodic and boundless. Where they may lead cannot be anticipated but following them is exhilarating.;Track List:1. Black Smoke Rise;2. Crossing;3. Lazy Bones;4. Home;5. Flight;6. Looking Out;7. Rising;Special Attributes:DIGITAL DOWNLOAD CARD
