WZT Hearts produce some of the most glorious noise you can find around Baltimore. They create soaring, blistering and expansive soundscapes awash in electronics, feedback and drone. Their set on Saturday’s outside stage for Whartscape shouldn’t be missed.
Read on as laptop extraordinaire and Floristree-resident Jason Urick takes time to reflect on our Wham and Whart questionnaire.
And enjoy these tracks off their 2007 Carpark release, Threads Rope Spell Making Your Bones.

1. Describe your feelings on Wham City and what it means to you?
the name Wham City first and foremost makes me think of the old cruddy/beautiful Copy Cat space and all the great times that were had there, secondly it makes me think of all the great new friends I made when that force descended on Baltimore 3-4 years back.
2. Describe your feelings on Whartscape and what it means to you?
absolute insanity/fun, overload of good music and good times. Last year was a blast and I expect this year to one up it! OXES!
3. Describe your feelings on Baltimore and what it means to you?
Baltimore means home to me… I’ve been here 8 years but it feels like a lifetime, both in the good and bad ways. But beyond all Baltimore means friends! there are so many great/talented people here per capita that it’s almost overwhelming.
4. Come up with a snappy tagline/mantra/motto for one or more of the following: Baltimore, Wham City and Whartscape.
Dude, Where’s My Head?
