Post-punk pioneers Wire returned this July with their 47th recording, the aptly titled Object 47. The new record marks a subdued downturn in the band’s style; somewhere along the line Wire morphed into frontman Colin Newman’s other band, the more ethereal Githead. 154 aside, Wire has always had an edge to it, nearing an industrial curb-stomp on records like Send and Chairs Missing. While a handful of tracks come close to that dissonant style, like “Hand Currency” and album ender “All Fours,” the record steers towards more of a mix of bass-heavy groovers (“One of Us”) and burned out subtle jams (“Circumspect”).
