Details on Wowser Bowser’s debut LP are a bit scarce; so far all we know is that it will be released
sometime this January January 24th via Adair Park Recordings. Well, that and the fact that the album’s first single, “Water Story” is a stellar psych-pop effort that ranks among the year’s best local tracks. But aside from that we know very little — no release date, no production notes, no album artwork or track list have yet to be revealed.
However, at least now we can take comfort in the knowledge that “Water Story” was no one-time fluke. Yesterday, Adair Park unveiled Wowser Bowser’s second single, “October,” and while it doesn’t have quite the same air of lush, abstract dreaminess that made “Water Story” so enthralling, the track’s impeccable production and swooning melodies make it nearly as infectious. These kids seem to have a knack for creating beautiful, billowing pop songs that lift you up and let your mind drift into a kind of soothing oblivion. Whether the remainder of the record lives up to the promises of the first two singles remains to be seen, but something tells me we’ll be hearing a whole lot about Wowser Bowser in 2012.
