CURRENT: Jagwar Ma – “O B 1”

Jagwar Ma follow-up their 2013 debut Howlin’ with Every Now & Then this fall, and they’ve shared “O B 1” to tide us over until the album’s release. The album follows in their debut’s footsteps, a maximalist, gigantic track not afraid to try any and everything. Yet it feels splintered whereas the majority of Howlin’ had a glossed finish. The sunny hooks, the 90s electronica influences are still there, but this time there’s a visible dark center of the universe. While most bands lose their edge as they evolve, Jagwar Ma appears to be finding theres.
