Cory Thomas Hanson is an L.A. garage-rock man-about-town who’s played with the Meatbodies, together PANGEA, and Mikal Cronin. He also fronts Wand, who play psychedelic space-metal at punk rock velocities. We posted the video for “Flying Golem,” a song from the Ganglion Reef album, last year, and they’re already about to follow it up with a new one called Golem. First single “Self Hynosis In 3 Days” is a delightfully scuzzy astral rocker, the sort of thing that might’ve happened if one of the bands on the mid-’90s Crypt Records roster had gone on a steady diet of Hawkwind for a year. Listen below.
Golem is out 3/17 on In The Red.
