Imaad Wasif needs my magic strings

I’m super excited about playing strings for Imaad Wasif. His new album, The Voidist, came out on Tee Pee Records, home of spacey guitar rock bands like The Warlocks, Brian Jonestown Massacre and Ya Ho Wa 13. His biggest gig to date was composing music for Spike Jonze’s “Where The Wild Things Are“.

Imaad is a seriously talented, inventive guitarist, an intense vocalist, and strong songwriter. It’s heavy, psychedelic, intelligent music, with intricate harmonies and catchy melodies. Think Devandra Banhart meets Nick Drake, add some Yeah Yeah Yeah’s and a touch of Pumpkins, and it’s somewhere like that.

The music we make together is truly sublime. It’s one of those projects that seems greater than any of the parts individually. Transcendent.

Here’s us playing at Spaceland in Los Angeles on February 11…
