Wizard of Cause: Tracks from J. Todd’s latest project

You’d be hard pressed to find a more prolific musician in Milwaukee than J. Todd. The Leonardo da Vinci of the Milwaukee underground just released the self-titled debut record of his latest project, Wizard of Cause, last Saturday. Essentially, it’s J. Todd’s venture into guitar-driven noise rock from the Sonic Youth school, intertwined into his signature electro-pop style. Something about it reminds me of Caribou at times, and he totally gets (+10) for rocking a Geddy Lee-model Fender J-Bass.

Watch for my interview with J. Todd that will be running in the Decider sometime before his next show at Mad Planet on May 30. But until then, here are some tracks to enjoy and download.

“Close to You,” Wizard of Cause

“Caspian Dream,” Wizard of Cause
