Wobblesauce Releases Jammin’ New EP, ‘Obstacle Illusions’ [Premiere/Listen]

first_imgWobblesauce has released part one of their double EP release, Obstacle Illusions, today, Wednesday July 20th 2016. In this four-track EP, the band really demonstrates how a four-piece rock group can progressively stretch the boundaries between jam and electronica, while still paying homage to the classics. This is especially apparent from their in-studio video and featured track release of “Grawlix” which clearly displays how each individual instrumentalist contributes to their complex layers of sound.From soaring guitar riffs and sultry synth lines, to textured bass drops filled with prog-rock polyrhythms, Wobblesauce delivers songs that take you on a sonic journey of the inner mind and spirit. Thanks to the band, we’re excited to premiere this jamming new release.Tune in to Obstacle Illusions: Part 1, streaming in full below.Part Two of Obstacle Illusions is due out this fall, so get ready… Join the Wobblesociety today! You can catch the band on the road at the tour dates below.last_img read more
