We’re not a synthpop band, a goth band, a noise band, an industrial band, or a new age band. We make music to confound ourselves and to challenge others. We don’t like doing things the right way. WISHFUL THINKING brings together the musicians of Led Er Est, Blues Control, Further Reductions, and The Coombe—bands that use hardware electronics to subvert the digital abstractions of the personal computer and resist the pure click-and-drag of the soft synth world. They’ll dissolve pop songs into walls of noise, and re-build aggressively rhythmic tracks that embrace the beauty of error in improvisation.
