By Gopal Rao.
Wooden Shjips’ Ripley Johnson, the bearded one pulling the strings behind the Shjips as well as the electo-psych Moon Duo, is a master of the sprawling, feedback-drenched, electric guitar freakout. While he has been plying his trade consistently around the world for more than a decade, the four piece band Wooden Shjips has remained dormant since 2013’s Back To Land. The Shjips are slated to release a new album on Thrill Jockey Records in the spring of 2018.
