Ball of Wax 46 closer “Great Neck” by Austin’s Guma is an unexpected delight. Rich and nuanced but impossibly airy, “Great Neck” draws on the same African and Island music (like the great King Sunny Ade) that’s inspired everyone from the Talking Heads to Tune-Yards. The hypnotic repetition of the bright, clean guitar parts contrast with the soaring, protean vocals. While a technically impressive tune, if feels breezy and effortless. Welcome to Ball of Wax, Guma, looking forward to hearing more in the future.
