Drink up and get on the Wand aeroplane heading deep into the pink-hued skies. Their record, Ganglion Reef, is out this week on the Drag City sublabel GOD? and if “Flying Golem” is any indication then the streets surrounding Wand are a kaleidoscopic blast zone. What is so great about “Flying Golem” is that texturally it’s dense and heavy as fuck, but the underlying acoustic guitar and hypnotic, catchy-as-anything melody turns everything on its head. I can’t figure out what’s going on with these guys and that just makes me want to digest even more. Damn good stuff.
Ganglion Reef is out TODAY.
