Wand – Bee Karma (Drag City)

A lovely loud/soft kinda thing from Cory Hanson and buds.

Again (as on his great solo album from last year) he sounds scarily like Marc Bolan and the loud bits here are not a million miles from the hip swinging boogie that T Rex brought to the world.

But I must say the soft parts take the prize for me.

Winsome.

Twinkling.

Tender even in their vaguely psychedelic demeanour.

When the band crashes in it all crackles with intent.
