The Best Thing You're Gonna This Week Is Probably This New Wand Track

I think that this is truly a beautiful and haunting jam. I was already a fan of Wand, thanks largely to their last album, Golem, but where that record pursued cuts that were more riff-based, this new tune is subtle and affecting.

Coming on like a less arch MGMT, Wand here offer up something that echoes early Roxy Music and classic era Sparks. "Stolen Footsteps" is our first taste of the band's upcoming record on Drag City. Called 1000 Days the record will be out in a few months.

In the meantime, my advice to you is to follow the band on their official website and play "Stolen Footsteps" a few dozen times. I have.
