"Melted Rope" (Live) By Wand is Northern Transmissions Song of the Day

Wand always try to separate the barrier between themselves and their loyal legion of fans, with each person in the room collectively experiencing the exploration and transcendence, they forge entirely new pieces from their recorded catalog. Spiders In The Rain is not simply a live album, but instead the seizing of lightning in a bottle, demonstrating the group’s stylistic sprawl and evolutionary expansion of their sound. The full-length drops on October 28th via Drag City. Ahead of the album’s release, the band have shared “Melted Rope”.

With “Melted Rope”, one the Wand crowd’s most requested faves, this live rundown coalesces into the kind of power ballad they’ve perfected since the days of Golem. Even in early, garage-psych guise, the song projected ineffably, its melody transcending the guttural neo-(post?)grunge beneath, standing out uniquely from the efforts of their peers. Here, the finer points just grow finer under the bright lights.
