I've been listening to this album for a few days now and it is only getting better. Wizard Oz is relaxed and subtle album that mixes elements of chillwave, shoegaze and pop. It is addictively smooth and enticing enough that have been been sneaking away from customers at work to listen instead. The tracks are complex despite them never reaching an feverish pitch, they've layers of sound all gentle piled into some kind of sonic cake (can you tell I am hungry as I write this). Never thought I'd be such a fan of well placed beeps in the midst of shimmering effects and delightfully ethereal vocals. If you've been keen on some of the great Canadian electronic pop/chillwave albums we've posted in the past like Tearjerker or Foxes in Fiction you'll most certainly like Wizard Oz, though I believe they're Australian. Released by the French label, Beko Disques, and mixed by our pal Warren Hildebrand of Orchid Tapes.
