Are Wyo Stars crazed fusion funkateers from outer space trying to master the L.A. experimental rock scene of the future? One might believe so after listening through Basuco Spells, the new record from these former Howl dudes. They at least seem to be beyond description in any standard way. They mix the avant, the experimental, the soft and the melodic of a lot of different genres. Still, it ends up being a grown-up soundtrack to a weird sci-fi blaxploitation cartoon for children who see things in more dimensions than three. Or let us put it this way: these guys used to be in bands like Bad Dudes, Miracle Chosuke, Upsilon Acrux, Dolphin City and Ranal Ape. Ring a bell? Well, even if it doesn’t, take some time with this light and airy production of some of the freshest sounds out there. Dance to the most challenging easy listening sci-fi pop we’ve come across in a long while. Laugh, play and roll around in an imaginary field to this rollercoaster ride of dreamlike punk-prog. If you have an open mind you will love it.
