Los Angeles-based garage fuzz quartet Wand formed in 2013, pulling together guitarist/vocalist Cory Hanson, drummer Evan Burrows, guitarist Daniel Martens, and bassist Lee Landey as purveyors of sludgy, psychedelic garage rock. They quickly put together an abundance of material that straddled the line between melodic and noise-heavy, issuing split singles with artists like Mikal Cronin and Meatbodies before being signed by Ty Segall to his Drag City spinoff label God? for the release of their 2014 debut LP, Ganglion Reef. Wand's third album, 1000 Days was released in 2015 by Drag City proper. The album saw Wand incorporating more electronics into their sound, while integrating their metal and psych elements even further. Their new album, Plum, sees the band expanding to a five-piece - it will be released September 22, again through Drag City.
