Montreal noise-psych-punk-kraut-rock band Wiwichu recently released their sophomore full-length, Zeigarnik Effect via Montreal “space music” label Jeunesse Cosmique. It follows their acclaimed 2013 debut Female Iron Rabbit. The band played a mix of old tunes and improvised collaborations during the first of a two-part set last Wednesday, August 27 at Psychic City — a jam space and studio that serves as Jeunesse Cosmique HQ. After a short break, they played Zeigarnik Effect in full to a small crowd of fellow musicians and friends. The space, decorated with Disney cartoon film soundtracks on vinyl and other weird kitsch, served as the perfect venue to hear the band’s jazz-influenced approach to punk and noise-rock.
