Hailing from Portland, Oregon, the band became one of the must see acts at this year’s CMJ. Happy to take influence from grey skies, early sci-fi novels, fuzz pedals and homemade drone boxes, WIBG formed as a duo in Portland, Oregon in 2008. Soon after, they took sail in a rickety ship called “The Blue Whale”, making a glorious racket across the United States and releasing an 11 track album of drunken-funeral-folk tunes in 2009 entitled My Bones They Are Naked. Since the band has grown in numbers and signed with Mon Amie Records of Brooklyn, NY in 2011. A two song, 16 minute/45 rpm/10” entitled “Sunbeams and the Cosmic Ascent to Nowheresville” is now available, and a self titled LP will be released on cassette on October 4, 2012, and on vinyl on October 30, 2012.
