Boomkat Product Review:
Brooklyn's Willy Anderson arrives at Moodgadget with a new five-song EP. Right down to his artist name, Anderson sounds like a Wavves song that was left to fester and eventually became sentient, forming its own band. These distorted bedroom-dwelling lo-fi transmissions are possibly more impressive than that sort of summary might suggest however, and behind these noisy, fuzzed-up tracts lies a palpable sense of emotion and a skillfully melodic ear for songwriting. Of his moniker, Anderson says: "I picked the name Weed because I'm comfortable with every association the word brings to mind." but songs like opener 'Quilt' and the overdriven, clanking closer 'W.G.A.' defy any dropout associations - DC Hope reveals a quick witted pop auteur in the making.
