Since quietly appearing on the scene in 2009, Los Angeles garage-psych project Wand have become synonymous with more well-known bands of the genre such as White Fence and The Oh Sees, who themselves are linked to the genre’s resurgent demi god known as Ty Segall. Segall signed Wand to his Drag City imprint GOD? and the label has released the band’s fuzzy, sludgy, oeuvre which began with 2014’s Ganglion Reef and continued with ambitious 2015 offerings Golem and 1000 Days. What keeps Wand from being lost in Segall’s massive shadow is their letting the music do the talking and leaving the showmanship at the door.
