September 15, 2010

Fresh off a killer set at ATP New York 2010, Wooden Shjips seemed like about the only ATP-goers who weren’t burned out by that intense weekend of music.  Headlining an excellent Sunday night bill to celebrate the third year anniversary of Music Hall of Williamsburg, the Shjip’s set of pulsing psychedelic rock reminded us both of our recent experience of guitarist Erik “Ripley” Johnson’s side project Moon Duo (albeit with a denser, even bigger sound) as well as the Shjips’ Halloween set that we covered last year.  This band specializes in a narcotic, intense West Coast-influenced sound, and they held most of this crowd in rapture for their one-hour set (even in spite of the $3 beers on offer).  Congratulations to the Music Hall for three years of epic music in Williamsburg!

I recorded this set from our usual spot in the venue with the Schoeps hypercardiod microphones.  The sound is excellent.  Enjoy!
