Wand
Plum

The first album in two years from West Coast psych outfit Wand and for this they've added two new members which has brought about a much more democratic songwriting process than before. The album was borne out of improvisational sessions which yielded dense and wildly chromatic music, pushing the envelope of their previous psych fuzz sound.  

Wand
Golem

Los Angeles psychedelic warriors Wand return with their second album of heavy, heavy jams. Whereas their debut for Ty Segall’s God? imprint was heavy on the ol' synthetic texture, this one has more of a live feel. In short, it rocks, as you might expect given that it's the group's inaugural release for their new label In The Red.

Wand
Laughing Matter

L.A.’s psychedelic rock sons, Wand, return with their 5th album, Laughing Matter. Despite the Ty Segall connections (Evan Burrows and Corey Hanson played in Segall’s backing band The Muggers), They seem to be moving away from a fuzzed-out rock sound to more contemplative Radiohead-ish territory. Plenty of experimentation going on, so all is good. 

Wand / Darto
Split

As if that picture of a lonesome horse wasn't adorable enough, so is the story of this record: Wand and Darto hung out in the studio and passed around lyrics 'til they'd reworked and reignited them. And then members of both bands shared out vocal duties for the members who rarely get to do that. Most likely a good time psych pop 7" with plenty of loving.

Wand
Perfume

Although it runs to over half an hour, this thing from LA psych-pop luvvies Wand is technically an EP rather than an LP. Either way, Perfume is a substantial new release from a band who only dropped their Plum full-length last autumn. There are some cracking songs on here - ‘The Gift’ sounds like Atlas Sound’s ‘Modern Aquatic Nightsongs’ as re-imagined by My Bloody Valentine. Elsewhere the likes of ‘Pure Romance’ demonstrate a good mastery of the loud-quiet-loud formula.

Wand
Machine Man / M.E.

Machine Man / M.E. is the new single from Wand. Flying high after the critical success of the Golem LP, this 7” features two new tracks. Machine Man is a classic slice of Wand which is akin to the dark sounds found on Golem. M.E. is a cover of the Tubeway Army song. It has been transformed into a weighty, riff-tastic masterpiece.

Wand
Ganglion Reef

Pyschedelic fuzzmongers Wand release their debut album 'Ganglion Reef' on GOD? records ahead of a US tour with Ty Segall. Sun drenched '60s garage pop with a heavy fuzz haze, this LA 4-piece provide a shimmering laid-back soundtrack to a chilled out summer driving along Route 66 in a soft top Chevrolet. Or even just a trip to B&Q. 

Wand
1000 Days

Three full-length albums in little over a year, that sounds like magic. Wand have kept on rolling, and their new album 1000 Days is their newest trick. With playful vocals accompanying entrancing beats, the album takes off where they left off. And by the time you're done listening, their fourth album should be just about finished!
