Vanderwolf re-emerges with a deliciously oozing slice of psychedelia called Glisten. The new single is heavily-slanted toward melting analogue synthesizers (Sam Sallon) and rich layers of acoustic guitars (Chris Cordoba) and an exquisite vocal by Max Vanderwolf. This heady tone-poem was recorded by producer Chris Wyles at his south London studio. Glisten will appear as part of the soon-to-be-released, 12 Little Killers, which will be available in a limited pressing of 500. Be sure to catch the mind-altering video by celebrated film-animator Alden Volney.
Vanderwolf with Daevid Allen & Robert Wyatt
and The Last Man Standing Ensemble
‘’Extinction!’’ is the upbeat title of a 2-sided digital single from Vanderwolf and his former band, Last Man Standing.
Side A is “When The Fire Grows Cold”, a piano-led cinematic nightmare-lullaby co-sung by the legendary musician-activist, Robert Wyatt.
The B side is “Extinction!”, a 7-minute Balkan-brass psychedelic fantasy featuring the late, great Daevid Allen’s glissando guitar solo and the wonderful Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey, Lydia Lunch, Tindersticks) on saxophone. These two epic tracks capture the polarities of Vanderwolf’s vision: one song precise and quietly disturbing and one sprawling and transcendent.
