Laughing Matter is one of the deepest head trips of an album of this (or any) year, and its creator, Wand, simply won't quit! Fresh off a triumphant tour of the USA, this summer is about to become certifiably endless as Wand set their sites on Europe (for the 2nd time this year!) in August! Taking it to festivals across the mainland before practically immigrating to the UK, where Wand's  no-clubs-pubs-or-halls-left-behind approach indicates a deep affection for olde Blighty, it's a satisfyingly dense tour that should not and cannot be missed! And while all have and will continue to get a kick out of Laughing Matter, it's no joke that the show must continue - following the madness across the pond, Wand return to the USA to support the recently returned Stereolab in select cities. Wanderers of the world, step out! Get to these shows!
