The summer of 2008 began a whirlwind year for Sara Magenheimer, Eben Portnoy and their band Fertile Crescent. In July they moved out of Brooklyn, self-released a 7-inch and embarked on a three-month tour of the USA. After opening for Deerhoof and garnering fans across the continent, the two retreated to a cold barn in Eastern Massachusetts. Alone in the woods, they cannibalized their sound, dramatically reconstructing their entire process.  
What emerged the next spring was a new beast entirely. WOOM's music is a wholly unique reinvention of pop likened to the quiet radicalism of Young Marble Giants, the devastating simplicity of early Velvet Underground, and the turbulent joy of contemporaries like Animal Collective, Tune-Yards and Micachu and the Shapes. Untethered to a traditional genre, WOOM generates music as irresistibly engaging and timeless as it is strange and new. 
The intensely honest Muu's Way reveals the intuitiveness of Portnoy and Magenheimer's six-year collaboration. Beneath its incredibly detailed DIY production brims a wild, uncontainable energy. Skittering beats, deep-diving bass, chorusing frogs, crumbling guitars and crackling voices swarm around songs that are at once heart-felt and emotionally enigmatic. It is an album of elemental affection and confident provocation. 
WOOM, based out of Oakland and Los Angeles, will be playing both East and West Coasts of the US this summer. May and June find them heading to Europe for dates with Xiu Xiu and many others.
