Fast-forward to now and Back To Land is more than just a career high-water mark for the band, it stands proud within the field of psychedelic music. To a certain degree, Wooden Shjips are the Ramones of their musical terrain. Like the New York delinquents, they've reduced rock & roll to its very essence: the simplicity of major chord sequences swathed in distorted fuzz guitar, almost moronic yet highly effective metronomic beats, pulsing bass and keyboards that dance around and colour the core musical components and all slowed down for a less than teeth-grinding effect. Despite discovering the joys of an extra chord or two, there's nothing superfluous about Back To Land; everything that's needed is in place and any excess baggage has long since been jettisoned. Not that Wooden Shjips have really ever been burdened by a surfeit of effects or unnecessary embellishment but right here, right now, this feels like the moment that the band has been working towards since they first got to grips with the joys of hypno-monotony.
