Small Wonder main man Henry Crawford calls his music "agnostic gospel," and that tag well fits his band's new EP, Wendy; the kitchen-sink indie-rock songs have nothing to do with religion (or gospel music for that matter), but they've got an otherworldly spiritual energy that's got me hooked. I've had Wendy on repeat since I heard it over the weekend, and my favorite tune is "Until I Open My Wings," which is today's 12 O'Clock Track. It's a slow-burning, piano-driven lovelorn number that's as beautiful as it is crushing—stream the tune below, and grab Wendy from Small Wonder's Bandcamp page.
