Wooden Shjips ‘Back To Land’ CD/LP/DD 2013

3rd December 2013 at 11:08 am

Wooden Shjips

Back To Land, the fourth album from San Francisco-based psychedelic rock quartet Wooden Shjips is, unfortunately, a frustratingly pedestrian affair. Listening back to their 2007 Holy Mountain debut and Dos, you can hear that the band’s formula hasn’t changed much over the years, but…

Wormwood – S/T – CD/LP/CS/DD 2014

7th November 2014 at 12:13 pm

Wormwood - S/T

Doom, to coin a phrase from Zoolander, is so hot right now. When you read Electric Wizard reviews in the friggin Guardian you know that the fashionable corners of the meeja are taking notice. That in itself is a dangerous thing for, without sounding…

Wort ‘Not Your Cup Of Tea’ CD/DD 2014

Wort

Sometimes, when you hear a new release by a band you’ve been previously unaware of and you think, man this is pretty good, you go looking for a physical record. I got the download of this to review, and halfway through the first track,…

Wreck And Reference ‘Black Cassette’ CD/LP/DL 2011

6th November 2011 at 11:15 am

Wreck And Reference ‘Black Cassette’ CD/LP/DL 2011

Wreck and Reference have left me bamboozled, wrongfooted by their self-applied ‘electronic doom’ tag and generally unsure of what to make of them. Two guys from Sacramento, Wreck And Reference have made Black Cassette available across several different formats over the course of 2011,…

Wrekmeister Harmonies ‘Night Of Your Ascension’ CD/LP/DD 2015

15th December 2015 at 6:35 pm

Wrekmeister Harmonies

Critics and reviews have an irritating tendency to describe artwork as ‘transcendental.’ If a book encourages the reader to think about the big questions, then it is ‘transcendent.’ If an album combines more than one genre, even if those genres are pretty similar, then…

Wytch Hazel ‘Prelude’ CD/LP/DD 2016

9th March 2016 at 7:13 pm

Wytch Hazel

Since their formation in 2011, Lancaster’s Wytch Hazel have been something different. Never committing fully to a genre and genuinely sounding like they are not of this time, the divine quartet have won over a varied audience with their Surrender single and The Truth…
