wwoman – “New Ferments”

wwoman

“New Ferments” is the first work from the highly promising Pittsburgh-based project wwoman. It’s an impressive effort that revolves around a series of psych-friendly loops and tranquil psych-rock-friendly guitar, percussion, and keys. Its intended pensive atmosphere certainly succeeds, guided by some of wwoman’s favorite equipment, including the Moog Prodigy, Juno 60, and Acetone Pheonix. Reminding of Tame Impala’s lusher efforts, “New Ferments” is concisely enjoyable at less than three minutes, yet in that time manages to create a trippy and melodically entrancing soundscape, one that returns in other project tracks below, especially on highlights like “Where’s My Lover” (Ariel Pink vibes):
