Hear Wooden Shjips' Blazing, Blown-Out New Song, 'Lazy Bones'

Categories: MP3 of the Day

The cover art for West. Look familiar?

Here it is, the first new song from West, the upcoming album by long-running but too-little-discussed S.F. psych outfit Wooden Shjips. The song is called "Lazy Bones," and it is anything but lazy. Rather, it's like one big trippy sprint, with deep vocals leaving druggy trails all over a repeating, fuzzed-out guitar riff for just under four minutes. In other words, it's friggin' fun.

We've had a sneak-peek at West and it's full of songs like this -- drawn-out linear journeys through landscapes of trembling organ and exploding guitar. All good things from this S.F. psych outfit, which is truly one of our favorites in the local scene. Grab the new song for yourself and see why:
