audiObelisk: Wight Stream New Demo Track; Free Download Available

Things have been pretty busy for stonerly trio Wight since they last checked in with their Wight Weedy Wight debut full-length (a whole month and a half ago that it was reviewed). They’re getting ready to release a jam-centric split 12″ with Stone Axe on their own Fat and Holy Records imprint, and at the start of next month, they’ll be embarking on a weekender tour through their native Germany with fellow riff-minded Darmsdadters Bushfire that’s been dubbed the “Malakas of the Universe” tour. Good fun.

Perhaps the best of all, though is that Wight are set to release their second album in the first part of the imminent New Year. February/March 2012 will see the release of Through the Woods into Deep Water, both on CD through Fat and Holy, and also on vinyl through Bilocation Records. Wight will celebrate in April with a performance at the Berlin Desertfest.

To help spread the word about Through the Woods into Deep Water, Wight have made a demo of the new song “You!” available for free download through their website. The sound is rough, but still plenty clear to give an idea, and the blues jam that ensues is unmistakable. To complement the killer soloing of guitarist Rene Hofmann, guest vocal spots from Bill Brown (of Bushfire) and Sami Isin (of Jamie’s Backyard) add to a loose, grooving atmosphere worthy of the second The Kings of Frog Island record.

The band offered me the chance to host the track for streaming and after taking a listen and nodding my way through “You!,” the choice seemed obvious. You’ll find it on the player below. Hope you dig:

Here is the Music Player. You need to installl flash player to show this cool thing!

Wight‘s Through the Woods into Deep Water is expected to release in early 2012. The free download of the “You!” demo is available from Mediafire here. To keep up to date on all Wight‘s many doings, check out their website.
