Thursday’s Jam of the Day: Wax Idols

Hether Fortune is the mind behind Bay Area garage rock band, Wax Idols. Basically she’s a hardened musician and bad ass who has taken the dive into the massive post-punk/garage rock resurgence that SF is leading right now. The band’s full length LP No Future matches the scene well and with unique hits. The slant of Wax Idols is that of ‘60s girl groups smashed against  intersperses harder-edged post/proto punk stylings. Wax Idols stream across several genres but don’t leave you wondering what the hell you just heard. Their sound is solid with stella tempo mix-ups to prevent making the ear from losing anticipation.  Between  Joan Jett vocals and driving to more slow back-drops, Wax Idols capture a unique sound in their genre that needs to be reckoned with.
