Wizzard Sleeve! Love their LP on Hozac from a while back, and this song, “Setting Fire to Your Loft” is of the same caliber. Dark, lurking, and dirty. The music oozes and splurts. It’s the synthesizer that lures you into the den of iniquity. Comparisons can be made to Blank Dogs, but Wizzard Sleeve are much more sinister sounding, and what pop there is in their music is sparing. Music for those who want something different and something better than what’s on offer by the truckload. True Sons Of Thunder give the world “Butt Bong,” which is a noisy, lumbering song where the music drones and the vocals talk over the din. Kind of an afterthought. Pick this up for Wizzard Sleeve.
