Wand - Golem
Hot on the heels of their debut set for Ty Segall's God? label, Wand come blasting back on every cylinder with the almighty 'Golem' on the legendary In The Red label. Employing the go-to man of the moment Chris Woodhouse (Thee Oh Sees, Fuzz, Mayyors) on the knobs and his Hanger studio in Sacramento, they have made the rock album of 2015 already - and it's going to take quite some considerable beating. There's been so many amazing lps out of the west coast recently we've been positively spoilt for choice but 'Golem' just has that little more punch, a little more bite and a little more pure fire! From the off it's 100% proof - pulsating riffs, huge drums, killer hooks but above all it's got tunes. Take Nirvana's 'Bleach', add a sprinkle of late 60's metal then dip in the best psychedelic party you've ever been too and it's a hit from start to finish.
