Portland's Wampire have released a new single called "Wizard Staff." Listen above.
The song begins with a twangy, jazzy intro and slips into phlegmatic vocals about some elusive, magical figure. The saxophone and synth combination is glorious, tacking on a funkiness that makes it feel classic and modern at the same time.
Burgeoning as a prankster duo, they've now graduated to a more traditional line-up as a five-piece band, and consequently have decided to clean up their sound a bit. "Wizard Staff" definitely shows a lot of growth.
