Wooden Shjips - Back to Land Pre-Order

The new LP from psych outfit Wooden Shjips, "Back to Land", is now available for pre-order from Underdog Records of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Here's what Stereogum had to say about it:
         Bay Area space-rock warlocks Wooden Shjips will soon follow up their great 2011 album West with a new album called Back To Land. According to a press release, the new album will move the band toward “more minimalist territories.” If the album-opening title track is anything to go on, that means the new album will have a bit of Lungfish’s mesmerizing circular repetition, though they’ll replace that band’s fearsome apocalyptic streak with an easygoing back-porch almost-blues vibe.

     Here's a preview from the album, "These Shadows":

     The LP will retail for $20.99 at Underdog Records but you can pre-order here via your PayPal account and get it for 10% off! You can also come by the store any time between now and closing on Tuesday November 5th, pay in person, and receive a full 15% off.
