Will Tun and the Wasters Bring Out Their Best Musical Ideas with The Anachronist’s Cookbook.

 Will, Josef, Deaglan, Jared, Dan, Ivo, Johnny and MC Amalgam of Will Tun and the Wasters Bring Out Their Best Musical Ideas with The Anachronist’s Cookbook.

I am honoured to get a preview of this fantastic new album by Will Tun and the Wasters. It’s called The Anachronist’s Cookbook. And it has all the wonderful flavours of fusion music. This is for ska lovers with nods to Celtic, urban and punk music. If the goal of the Wasters is to make life a party, then they have succeed in this new album.11261415_10153146270106045_5083489851014269271_n

Wow six years as a band. That’s amazing considering that they always record fantastic tunes and I think you would agree with me(as a fellow fan) that we always expect any release from a band that we follow fervently!

So what can you expect from The Anachronist’s Cookbook? It has twelve electrifying songs. They are fast and good to dance to, but also artfully crafted. The production is superb. It’s clean, lush and the emphasis is on the rhythm. You can expect instrumental greats with the Wasters. For example, Move Your Mind has a Gypsy-inspired intro. And I think having a French rapper in the team balances the creative influences. MC Amalgam adds an Urban feel to the mix.

The Other Side is the current single off Cookbook. It’s vocally and instrumentally powerful. It sounds like a great party. It also features Feminist Punk-poet Jenn Hart. Hey it’s got a cool music video too. Why don’t you check it out. It features a cut-out animation that comes to life.

This new album celebrates the power of music that celebrate diversity. I will take this blurb from their press release:

The album represents their journey of personal and political discovery through alternative communities and underground culture, bringing together styles from Klezmer to Ska, Folk to Hip-Hop, Punk to World Music. When combined, The Anachronist’s Cookbook represents arguably the most eclectic representations of underground music existing today.

You better the album upon its release later this week!

Here’s the rest of the press release:
