Despite its many and varied benefits for we music obsessives, the digital age of music has also made it fairly difficult to merely stumble upon those best-kept-secrets or have a personal experience with as-yet-undiscovered music, even just for a moment. Everything feels discovered, blogged upon and the only thing new about it is you finding out. So, imagine our delight in finding — and now, presenting unto you — UK’s WOLF PEOPLE. The music of Wolf People comes direct to you with no precedent or connotation other than the volumes of psych-rock history it illuminates, scrambles and refracts in these mysterious songs.
Tidings (Released Feb. 23 in the US and Feb. 22 in the UK) is the first dark and frenzied offering from London’s Wolf People — an alchemistic compendium of English classic rock that has been doused in wine, its pages left red-stained, blurred and melded in the most interesting ways. Listen to album cut “October Fires” HERE.
Tidings serves as an index of possibilities, whetting the appetite for the band’s debut LP, which is due for release on Jagjaguwar later in 2010.
