Last week I caught up with Wil Wagner and got him to perform a couple of tunes for theMusic.com.au. Check them out below!
WATCH: SMITH STREET BAND LEADER & GENERAL LEGEND WIL WAGNER PLAYS US SONGS!
14 June, 2013
In what is one of our most spirited theMusic Sessions performances to date, The Smith Street Band frontman and solo artist in his own right, Wil Wagner, took to the streets on a rainy night in Perth to play us two fucking awesome songs.
From The Smith Street Band’s (or “the fuckin’ Smittys”) much acclaimed 2012 LP Sunshine & Technology comes I Can’t Feel My Face, one of the songs that has seen the group quickly rise to garner national acclaim in circles outside of the punk rock scene. Check it out here.
Then Wagner moved onto a track from Laika his excellent solo mini-album of earlier this year, dropping More Like Signals Midbest – a pretty great portrait of his band on the road, among other things – with a little bit of help from a new friend!
Wagner plays the below shows coming up, while The Smith Street Band play a bunch of dates with the excellent Cheap Girls and Joyce Manor, which you can see here.
