Ruins is their new album, and its over-riding theme is that of nature reclaiming the land. The transcendence of life over politics, plants over people. It asks: where are we going and what comes next? If culture is history’s narration, then Wolf People are custodians and conduits; electrified sages, if you will. Through them runs a time-line of a nation rising from bloody glory to existentialist confusion. Wolf People began life in the ancient Bedfordshire village of Clophill, a place recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Clopelle (translation: ‘tree stump’), on land owned by a Norman knight, Nigel d'Aubigny. By the time future frontman Jack Sharp and drummer Tom Watt met there, Britpop, hip-hop and fresh fruit had replaced pillaging, chain mail and scrofula, but the mission not dissimilar to that of their forefathers: to embark upon crusades to foreign shores.

Wolf People are an English psychedelic rock band, formed by singer and guitarist Jack Sharp in Bedford in 2005. Frontman Jack Sharp grew up in Clophill, Bedfordshire. At 14 years old, Sharp approached future Wolf People drummer Tom Watt, who lived nearby, and asked if he would like to join his band, having heard drumming coming from Watt's house. Watt agreed despite the fact that he couldn't actually play drums - the noise Sharp had heard had actually been made by Watt's drummer sister.

And that’s the thing: Wolf People are nearly there. Ruins is the type of album that could sway the tide further in their favor, to give a more focused run at the life of a touring, recording band. As it stands, the foursome’s palavers are regimented, rare affairs. Each member of the band lives in a different part of England, with day jobs, making regular rehearsals and shows difficult. The most perfect environment, probably, was during Wolf People’s 2014 stop in Happy Valley, Oregon, at Pickathon, where their set at the forested Woods Stage presented a wizardly marriage of the band’s imagery with their surroundings. Ninth Night, the first single from Ruins, begins shyly enough, a sweet-sounding acoustic guitar coyly picking notes just before a fuzzy squall crescendos and gives birth to a heavy Zeppelin shuffle. It’s a more-or-less straightforward heavy jam ball-buster at its heart.

I have the black vinyl, and yes there is non-fill, especially at the start of both sides, indicating a hasty pressing process and poor quality control. I wonder what it would be like in a remaster? The music merits it: nostalgic psychedelic shoegaze of the first order, counting as a significant release in the retro 70s occult rock genre that includes Witchcraft, Blood Ceremony and Lucifer, amongst others. It is particularly psychedelic and folky, so it has its own fuzzy sound. A real grower.
Envias
Can someone who has the black vinyl version comment on whether their copy is noisy? By noisy I mean noisy static filled lead-in on both start tracks on either side.
Tehn
I have a black vinyl copy and it's noisy. Probably same transfer as the clear
Hugifyn
Is this the black vinyl version? Is it any better than the clear one? My clear copy has extremely noisy lead in on both sides, and this is a common issue.
OCARO
I have the clear vinyl pressing. It is noisy. I wonder if the black vinyl version is any better
Love Me
Mine too. I took mine back and the second copy was just as bad. A whooshing sound in the lead in to both side A and B.
Quellik
Sorry but I do not understand! I listen only vinyl and it is absurd that the prints are so bad! The productions or artists do not realize the poor quality of the prints on vinyl? I'm not forced to buy more records unfortunately! A lot of prints are very bad!
Thordira
This pressing sounded pretty good in my opinion. A few pops and clicks here and there, but overall a great listen.
Gianni_Giant
these comments for clear vinyl ?what about regular black vinyl ?
Unsoo
ANY vinyl pressings from Jagjaguwar no matter color - are bad
Jelar
sigh - sadly, this band is still allowing this horrible label (Jagjaguwar) to release their vinyl. the vinyl will most certainly have surface noise and flaws equalling a total waste of money....UPDATE: As expected from this label this pressing is a disaster. A1=G extremely noisy lead-in, 6 tics at end; A2=VG+ noise at end; A3=VG+ 1+ multi-rev tics, noisy; A4=VG noisy; A5=VG+ multi-rev tics / B1=G extremely noisy lead-in, multi-rev tics; B2=NM; B3=VG+ B4=NM; B5=VG+ 1 loud pop, noise at end; B6=NM; B7=NM (ends abrupt with a click - intentional?)
Sadaron above the Gods
Can I confirm whether yours was the clear vinyl or not?
Qucid
Yep, extremely noisy lead in one two separate copies. I messaged the band about it, and I suggest everyone tweets and messages them on Facebook. They do read and reply.
Vudojar
I've heard quite a few people slate Secretly pressings, I've always found them to be well pressed.
SoSok
So... you haven't heard it yet? I have a few jagjaguwar releases and they're fine?
Malhala
Jagjaguwar is not so bad, is it? For example, black mountain and early wolf people are well pressed!
