The Best Psych Albums of 2009

Psychedelia has influenced so many things in 2009 -- whether the band is labeled freak-folk, psych-pop, or garage psychedelia to name a few -- that the creative approach to songwriting has influenced and been adopted by so many genres that barely any independent label has remained untouched by its reaches.

Wooden Shjips: Back to Land

Back to Land, the latest release from minimalist motorik four-piece Wooden Shjips, isn’t likely to be the album you were expecting. But it is one to prove that the band’s free spirit still reigns.

Wooden Shjips: West

The latest and most compelling album from Wooden Shjips doesn’t mess with the formula of previous releases, but does add more consistency to an already dependable sound of heavy drone.

Moon Duo: Mazes

Welcome a slightly sunnier Moon Duo on this second full length of heavy guitar/synth drone.

Wooden Shjips: Wooden Shjips

Plenty of lovely fuzz-drenched guitar, spaced-out production, and intense use of repetition.
