Tracklist: Well Wisher - Babe Issues

You might have seen this on our Twitter to a good reception over the weekend but it's far too good not to share with a permanent audience. Well Wisher are from Manchester and sound like both Johnny Foreigner - it's all in the yelp - and all those Chicago bands (apart from Wilco) Alexei always goes on about, chiefly involving the Kinsella family. Spidery guitars, collapsible rhythms, strident vocals with emotive self-regard. This is on a split 7" with Polina, of whom we know nothing, on A Mountain Far/L’Oeil Du Tigre soon. You don't need many words, just the song's pure wracked corkscrew excellence.
