Wire’s Object 47

The title of Wire’s eleventh album — due for release on July 16 and their first since 2003’s Send — suggests some angular, nonrepresentational piece of AbEx sculpture, the kind that rejects all attempts to name it anything other than what it is. Which is more or less the case. Object 47 is Wire’s 47th release, counting albums, EPs, and compilations. That means it comes with context intact: Even as the band work not to retread well-trod ground, these songs feature the same sociopolitical songwriting and tense interplay between drums and guitars as on previous albums. That’s a good thing. So are Page Hamilton’s (Helmet) blasts of feedback on closer All Fours.
