New Wand aloft! So how to explain….Wand manufacture a little life within an elaborate craftwork of sound amongst the endless social contrivances of popular music – that almost says it? On their Drag City debut, 1000 Days, Wand move restlessly and gracefully through divergent phases of music in a single passage of a song. This is how they make their music. Recorded in their hometown of Los Angeles and San Francisco, 1000 Daysfinds Wand searching in corners and finding extra texture via synthetic animation. The atmosphere is quicksilver and the space acoustic; as a beacon sparks electric, a cascade of hi-fi noises for everyone’s ears – raucous, impassive, inevitable musical expressions. The hope is to use your head, to escape the chains wrapped invisible around us.
