Waiting to be Disc-overed

Eye Weekly’s Disc-overy of the Week:

WINDOM EARLE

Gold Wave (Boost Ventilator) * * * * The thing about being from the east coast is that you can be pretty sure the rest of the country will ignore you until forced not to. Mostly unknown due to the gaping cultural void between Fredericton and Quebec City, Windom Earle has been an instrumental synth-rock staple in Halifax for four albums now. A home-recording project for man-about-the-North-End Stephan MacLeod, Gold Wave is the band’s most delirious outing yet. Opening with an oddly garage-rocky version of “Get On Into It,” (which appeared on a MacLeod-curated compiIation last year), they turn in the highly original “Forked Wrist Waltz” before getting all squishy and delicious with “Guitorgan.” Not only worth seeking out; worth writing the band to beg them to tour this way (www.windomearle.com). – HS
