Best of 2019: Wand — “Laughing Matter”

Welcome to Beet Knife’s Best of 2019. We’ll be sharing a favorite release from one of the artists we work with every day for the month of December. Today’s feature was selected by Max Murray of Moss Jaw and No Tongues for Quiet People.


This year, LA-based Wand made one of the most ambitious rock records of the last couple years with Laughing Matter. At times it drifts close to Radiohead, but stays rooted in desert-rock-style guitar music. 

Laughing Matter was released April 19, 2019 on Drag City.
