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.

Staff note from Clinton:
It started rackety and I thought I was in for some psych noise but the bursts are accompanied by gloriously tuneful falsetto vocals and the title track reminds me so much of Loud Family/Game Theory's Scott Miller at his most dysfunctional which to me is a very good place indeed. Sounds like Wand have gone really tuneful here as 'Pure Romance' is also a delicious ramble through the back roads of pleasant psych. Seven tracks so it's almost an album and the tracks we heard are very very good.
