    Battling that dreaded space cadet feeling this Monday morning…Could be the 5:30AM wake up call (courtesy of my current crop of foster cats, expressing their collective unhappiness with a closed bedroom door). Or the waning effects of a 5-hour journey from Philly to NYC (um, it’s only about 90 miles). Maybe it’s even got something to do with the hangover from an unexpected three day weekend. Whatever the reasons, this here noggin is perched a little too heavy for my shoulders today, making it a rather splendid time for naval gazing to the tune of Imaad Wasif’s Strange Hexes.

    Formerly of both Lou Barlow’s Alaska! and Folk Implosion projects, as well as a one time guitarist for Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Wasif certainly keeps some rather grand artistic company. ‘Course famous friends are on thing, sonic wares a whole other. Fortunately, the introspective bouts of guitar driven psychedelia offered here dig their roots deep while Wasif taps into the collective fuzz with acidic doses of mystic poetry. Druggy, yet ultimately au courant, the Vancouver native and his band Two Part Beast may very well ride their seasoned surge of stoner riff rock to artistic pay dirt in the months to come.
