'Mr. Hands' was recorded and mixed by Kevyn Wright
WTCHS are purists, but they’re also realists. “digital is easier, so digital works” they tell us in an email, while insisting that “it’s a basement recording made for vinyl, and meant to be listened to on vinyl.” But there’s no shade of compromise to be found on “Mr. Hands” If anything, the new single represents growth. After a few minutes of the full-tilt post-punk bedlam that scoured their Wet Weapons EP, the track gradually distends with a Queens of The Stone Age Mojave mysticism, leading to something approaching vocal harmony as the vocals turn from incendiary to sympathetic.
