Wand’s new LP, Golem, was released in March via In The Red Records. The album, engineered by Chris Woodhouse and assisted by Bob Marshall, was mixed (with Wand) and recorded by Woodhouse at The Dock in Sacramento. If you’re familiar with Woodhouse’s prolific resume as mixer/engineer (see Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, et al), you already know what you’re in for without hearing a single note on Wand’s new album. With that, go ahead and hit play on “Self Hypnosis In 3 Days”.
Wand’s Cory Thomas Hanson (vocals, guitar, synth) previously played with the likes of Mikal Cronin, Meatbodies, and together PANGEA. Joined by Evan Burrows (drums), Daniel Martens (guitar), and Lee Landey (bass), Wand made a strong impression at SXSW following the release of Golem last month. Wednesday’s San Francisco show is not to be missed.
