this account offers wanda's old demo songs from their 2002-03 recording sessions. redirect to myspace.com/wandaph for the 2006-07 records.
a thinline between jpop and britpop, afroasian and electrojazz, between blur and oasis, between fog and smoke, between fuzz and ring. a bloodtrail from los angeles to manila.

whenever raius is in manila, yes, we do.
