Apparently Orca Team‘s┬áLeif Anders has gone into a government witness protection plan. He appears to be sending out communiques from somewhere in the Carribean under the name Tim McClanahan. Last year Orca Team seemed to totally go for it. They released a great album in Restraint and toured like crazy. Perhaps they burnt out a bit or maybe Interpol or the Russian mafia really are after them because they’re now on some kind of ‘hiatus’ and Leif is going by Tim and playing in a tropical band.

Week of Wonders is the new band. It’s a trio fronted by Leif, who has switched to a guitar that sounds like steel drums. Week of wonders takes the surfy, 50’s driven Orca Team sound and takes it to a secret island in the Bermuda Triangle, spices it up and gives it a mojito. The band have a five song EP called Failures up on Bandcamp available right now.
