Boomkat Product Review:
Wanda Group crawls inside your ear and plays out an abstract dramaturgy of haptic whorls and macrocosmic events with the bleeding ooze of Central Heating, his 2nd LP for Opal Tapes after 2013’s widely acclaimed Piss Fell Out Like Sunlight slab.
Like some metaphysical Eugene Tooms character from X-Files hybridised with salad fingers, the wiry blighter flosses your head with a frayed concrète ribbon of texturhythmic pattern and long, pointy digits that really get in there and fiddle around the grey goo.
A Bag of Warm Milk evokes the sensation of extruding your mind thru a nice, warm set of pipes in a haunted OAP’s home set on the moors, or maybe the boiler room of an ancient hospital, imagining you/him as particle convected thru time and space in state of amniotic bliss, not a f**king care in the world.
On the other hand, Easy in the Future is conversely warning and alert, vacillating passages of panicked dissonance and pensive ambience picking up the rumbles of distant traffic. Of course there is possibly some deeper meaning to it all, then again, it might just be meant to feel nice and trippy and make your teeth curl.
Chuff knows, but we like it a lot.
