Wonder Wheel – Think Too Much  (via No Fear Of Pop)

Wonder Wheel is the Orange, California band and recording project fronted by Paul A. Rosales, SoCal psych-pop production mastermind (Tan Dollar, Pearl Harbor/Puro Instinct and more). 

Current members include Raul Esparza on bass guitar and Danny Gonzalez on drums. The combination of post-punk thuds, psychedelic swirls and krautrock rhythms (re)animates the colorful back catalog of Wonder Wheel. Over 20 solo albums have been reevaluated and songs redesigned to construct brand new pieces of pop galore.

Both tracks will appear on the first full-length WW band album “Total Bundy”, Spring 2011 on cassette via Burger Records.
