Wand is like Radiohead from the timeline where they are Acid Addicts writing songs about Zeus and Ronald Reagan pounding Michelle Obama in the sky.

I can't shake the fact that Cory Hanson (lead vocalist) has that uncanny resemblance to Thom Yorke's vocals. Good thing is, this record shimmers all the way through its massive 14 track album which expands from grungy, garage rock to an expansive psychedelia sound. An adventurous, rewarding listening experience.

Yeah, I wish I liked this album but it just feels stale/bland.

Great album. Love the melodies and production. Some songs sound like removed tracks from the In Rainbows session. Radiohead comparisons aside, I love the production and tone on the whole thing. I really wish that track Tortoise was removed from the album, I don't get it at all.

Favs: Scarecrow, xoxo, High Planes Drifter, Wonder, Rio Grande, Wonder (II)
