andhim – The Wizard Of Us [Get Physical]
The Wizard of Oz is a classic tale: one that takes the viewer-and the protagonist-on a journey that’s fraught with various contrasting emotions. German producers andhim‘s The Wizard of Us is aptly titled, then, as it too conjures up spellbinding images that are draped in mystery, wonder and intrigue.
The record itself turns up on Get Physical, a label that’s at this point, well accustomed to the more curious side of the spectrum. The title track offers a case in point, with its firm, looping aesthetic and canny guitar licks inviting the listener to indulge in its effervescent hues and practically celestial vibes.
The B-side is no slouch for that matter, either, with ”Hausch” filled with pensive tension, sultry lyrics and lackadaisical textures aplenty. The perfect accompaniment to toast in the summer, The Wizard of Us serves up a fascinating, colourful record that’s unlike few others you’re likely to encounter this summer. You might be a long way from Kansas-but andhim are on hand to ensure the journey keeps us enthralled throughout.
