Wooden Wand & The Vanishing Voice - Buck Dharma Buck Dharma
Psych New - LP 026 Time-Lag
New, Unplayed Double 180gm Original Housed In A Deluxe Heavy-Duty Gatefold. This Is A Limited Edition, Hand Numbered 231 Of 800 Pressings. Wooden Wand And Co. Have Been Serving Up Some Damn Fine Doses Of Psychedelia Over The Last Couple Years To Be Sure, But This Mighty Slab Here Nails The Very Essence Of Their Power. Beautifully Blurring The Lines Between Songs And Jams, This Is The Stuff You 'Ve Been Waiting For. The Whole Thing Has A Great Dark, Lo-Fi Edge To It That Will Tangle Yr Mind Right Up And Not Let Go For A Good 80 Minutes. Seriously Warped Sounds Abound, From Folky Dirges To Throbbing Trance Rock To Rippling Sonic Explorations To Weird-Ass Organ Lurch, All Executed With A Woozy Minimalism That Makes The Walls Crawl. Wooden Wand And Satya Sai Scuppety Swap Off Vocals Throughout To Great Effect, And The Whole Thing Unfolds Rather Cinematically… Certainly One Of The Most Face Melting Downer/Acid/Folk/Psych Albums You 'Ll Hear This Year... more details
 
Wooden Wand & The Vanishing Voice - The Flood The Flood
Psych New - LP TMU 168 Troubleman Unlimited
Sealed 2005 Original. “The Flood Is Typical Modern Psychedelic Indie Folk-Rock. Like Their More Famous Peers Animal Collective, The Strangely Named Wooden Wand & The Vanishing Voice Focus Primarily On Raw Atonal Atmosphere, Where Instruments And Voices Meander And Waver For The Sake Of Mood Rather Than Melody. "The Flood" Presents Pretty Much The Entire Story. All The Bandmembers Sing The Song In Its Entirety, With Their Voices Overlapping But No Pretense Toward Harmony. Guitars Wail Like Scratched Keyboards, As A Musical Structure Akin To Murky Soap Bubbles Emerges Over The Course Of 14 Minutes. The Song Wanders At A Snail's Pace, At Once Soothing In Its Rhythm Yet Disturbing In Its Myriad Screeching Sound Effects. The Remaining Five Tracks Basically Repeat The Formula. Whether The Album As A Whole Is A Glorious Miasma Or An Unlistenable Nuisance Is Entirely Up To The Listener. Only Die-Hard Fans Of Dissonant Psychedelic Acoustica Need Apply Here. Others Won't Find The Beauty Buried Beneath The Chaos.” - Tim Digravina, All Music Guide.... more details
 
Wooden Wand & The Vanishing Voice - Gipsy Freedom Gipsy Freedom
Psych Used - LP GER 053 5 Rue Christine
1996 2LP Original With Insert. “The Continuing Career Of Wooden Wand & The Vanishing Voice Could Almost Be Described As That Of Enjoyably Amused Willfulness — They Seem All Too Readily To Be Lumped Into The Neo-Psych/Folk Collective Ramalama Of The Early 21st Century, But Then They Start An Album Like Gipsy Freedom With A Song Consisting Of Nothing But Low-Key Free Jazz Sax And Female Singing And All Of A Sudden The Spirit Of Patty Waters Reincarnated Proves A Better Touchstone Than Syd Barrett. With The Sax Being Provided By Guest Daniel Carter, The Five Piece Band Takes The Title Of This Album Seriously — In Fact It Could Arguably Be A Perfect Phrase For Their Career Of Multitudinous Releases, Labels, And Incarnations. Two Lengthy Explorations Provide Near Bookends For The Album: "Didn't It Rain" Is Part Steady Pluck-And-Drone, Part Scrabbling Collapse, While The Twice As Long "Dead End Days With Caesar" Has A Great Stoned-Poetry Rap Which Iggy Pop Probably Would Love To Use Sometime If The Reunited Stooges Ever Did A Show Of Nothing But "We Will Fall." In Contrast Are Two Tracks Under Two Minutes, Including "Don't Love The Liar," Which Might Be As Close As Wooden Wand Get To A Garage/Punk Number — At Least, In An Alternate Universe, And With A Suddenly Shrill Start To The Chorus. The Various Explorations Throughout Reach A Level Of Exultance That Show The Group Is Much More Than Just A Bunch Of Folks Thinking The Height Of Improvisation Is A Drum Circle: "Hey Pig He Stole My Sound," With Its Collage Of Melodies And Clattering Beats Culminating In A Final Minute Of Fierce, Insistent Rhythm, While The Skeletal Death Folk Of "Dread Effigy" Has All Sorts Of Drone, Feedback, And More Lurking In The Mix Which Evolves Into A Richer, Wordless Singalong By The End Of The Song.” – Ned Raggett, All Music Guide... more details
