Prior to 2006, Wooden Shjips was an experiment in primitive and minimalist rock. after it imploded, ripley johnson, guitar and vocals, assembled the current lineup of dusty jermier on bass, nash whalen on organ, and omar ahsanuddin on drums.

'West' marks the first time the band recorded in a proper studio, as well as the first time with an engineer (phil manley). all previous recordings, either self-released, for holy mountain, or mexican summer were done more piecemeal in the band's rehearsal studio.

'West' was recorded and mixed in six days at lucky cat studios in san francisco. it was mastered by sonic boom at blanker unisinn, brooklyn, with additional mastering by heba kadry at the lodge in new york. the over riding theme for the album (as indicated by the title) is the american west, and all of the mythology, romanticism, and idealism that it embodies.
