WYCH ELM, THE: Crashberry Waltzes: 7”

The Wych Elm are a five piece band from Des Moines, Iowa whose sound is about as diverse as they come. In Crashberry Waltzes they mix artsy, folky, dark rock with syncopated synth and trumpet-laden punk, making the perfect 7” for the rare house that has ‘90s experimental and pop punk fans living under the same roof. A slightly puzzling aesthetic, but it definitely works for them. –Candace Hansen (Self-released, thewychelm.bandcamp.com)
