Week of Wonders brings tropical punk to Eyedrum

When it comes to tropical punk, Seattle's Week of Wonders has the game on lock. The band's overcast-but-sunny brand of upbeat guitar-bass-drum tunes is a direct result of principal member Leif Anders' previous band Orca Team, but the bouncy rhythms and self-described "post punk beach party" aesthetic incorporates a vaguely darker strain. Anders, having recently joined the Intelligence - Seattle's most productive and inclusive art-garage outfit - seems to entertain little interest in winding things down. Together with Torn ACLs' Tim McClanahan (bass) and Health Problems' Aubrey Mangrum (drums), Anders has released three succinctly sun-dazed digital EPs and singles in the handful of months since Week of Wonders' inception, starting with the frigidly catchy Failures EP. The project's agile rhythm section, haunted melodies, and undeniable hooks might be destined for bigger things, but Week of Wonders is only interested in soundtracking affectedly sandle-wearing after-parties.

Stream Week of Wonders' "All You Can't Express With Words" digi-single, which includes a pleasant cover of Cocteau Twins' "Heaven or Las Vegas, below:

Week of Wonders, Wishes, Polarity Signs, and Glen Iris. $5. 9 p.m. Mon., Nov. 4. Eyedrum, 115 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive SW, Suite 225.
