WAND
WAND
September 2013, Wand was quietly dismembered and ritually eaten in the hills near Dodger Stadium. Wand reborn as “Wand”— an obese organ falsely organized as 4 overjoyous nerds. Four flesh balloons betting on a few aging amplifiers. I hear they listen to Here Come the Warm Jets on loop all day and plot mail fraud. I hear they stole Dale Crover’s car and sacrificed it to the weather near the Los Angeles County Line. Some few things, at least, are certain: Wand hears ghosts. Wand prefers serpents. The Sun is the mother of every fiction. All phenomena will be consumed in alphabetical order, but desire will recirculate ad infinitum. If all else fails, Wand will just devour more hands.
Hollow Sunshine
Hollow Sunshine
Versatile visual artist Reuben Sawyer (Destruction Unit, Chelsea Wolfe, GAG, Deafheaven) and vocalist Morgan Enos follow their 2013 debut LP with even catchier explorations of their drone/shoegaze/pop amalgam. Fans of Jesu and Hum will rejoice in the beautiful contrast of Sawyer's downtuned guitar mass with Enos' subdued, earnest vocal melodies as the duo meander pleasantly through two songs of helplessness, departure and relief.

"Dreary metalgaze duo Hollow Sunshine are following up last year’s self-titled full-length with Cold Truth, a 7” due out early next month on Nostalgium Directive. ... Reuben Sawyer (who some of you may know as Rainbath Visual) keeps the downtrodden fuzz on track, and Morgan Enos’ vocals still sound like Justin Broadrick on the fringes of loneliness." --Pitchfork
Male Gaze
Male Gaze
"There is nothing quite like the feeling you get when you discover that members of your favorite defunct bands have been palling around together and secretly playing music. In the case of Male Gaze, we’ve got Mark Kaiser (Mayyors), Adam Cimino (The Mall) and Matt Jones (Blasted Canyons) all conspiring to bring sweaty basement shows back to San Francisco and make sure that if you don’t have tinnitus by now, you soon will. Blankets of fuzz and dirty cymbal splashes rush in to push you around and if you can put aside a minor Ian Curtis impression, the vocals manage to ride up front just right and cut clear across the room. It sounds almost exactly like what you would think a Mall and Mayyors combo would sound like and that’s kinda of an amazing thing." --Unpiano
