Imaad Wasif Would've Surely Improved Our Independence Day Celebrations

Better than fireworks? Maybe. (N. Zinner)

Kids, barbecue and fireworks displays kept me at home this Independence Day, but if I hadn’t been such a dedicated homebody, I would have gotten my ass up to Denton and checked out Imaad Wasif at Hailey’s.

Wasif is a Canadian singer/guitarist/songwriter best known for his work with The Folk Implosion and as a touring member of Yeah Yeah Yeahs. His self released new effort, Strange Hexes, is an album that he claims, “explores the depths of madness and love". Besides that, it’s a great collection of psychedelic folk rock that recalls Dylan fronting Black Sabbath with Ravi Shankar producing.
