Wiqwar is the collective name for the output created by the brothers Wickwar and this s/t effort is the follow up to the well received Fence records release last year. The Wickwar brothers ideas are both refreshing and uplifting much like a can of my favorite carbonated grapefruit drink T'ing. Wiqwar, like T'ing provide a refreshing alternative to other stuff that sounds similar but not as good and I must say I am fully charmed and refreshed by this record. The warm buzz and hum of guitars perfectly accompanies the organic percussive samples that make up the beats. Tracks are both emotive yet playful and fun for the listener with both dense an complex ideas made light and listenable. Some of it reminds of River State Widening or Pullman but with more of an acoustica-electronic slant. They've also done a great job with the recording which is crisp, warm and remarkably well balanced, plus they sure as hell know how to record an acoustic guitar proper. Also, props for the self-release. It's a tough world out there for the truly independent artist and I wish them all the best for the future.
