Los Angeles band Wand just released their debut album, Ganglion Reef, this week (8/26) via Ty Segall's GOD imprint through Drag City. It's fuzzed-out, very catchy psych-rock in the late '60s style. If you dig Ty's new album (and you should), definitely give Wand a listen. You can stream two tracks below and listen to the whole thing at Hype Machine.

Wand will be out on tour with Ty Segall next month, including the September 17 date at Webster Hall in NYC (tickets). (The 9/18 show is with La Luz).

UPDATE: The Mercury Lounge show we had originally listed for Tuesday is a different Wand. One of these Wands needs to change their name....we'll let them work it out.

All dates are listed, along with the song streams, below...
