At first, Wooden Indian Burial Ground might sound like a slew of psych rock bands that you've heard before. Expansive guitar riffs shriek with distortion, yelps and screams punctuate mumbled vocals, drums make your body shake to their beat. It only takes a few songs to realize that WIBG takes the genre and makes art from it. Their new self-titled album stems from synth-infused garage roots and spirals out into deep, cavernous places. Just when you think you're going to get lost in a tripped-out guitar riff, they reel you back in with a bang and remind you that this isn't just some happenstance jam. While frontman Justin Fowler has been making music under this moniker since 2007, WIBG are finally getting some cross-country recognition, most notably at CMJ this past September. Their precision and talent is something we can't let go unheard, now that we know it's there. RACHEL MILBAUER
