[PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT] When groundbreaking British punk-not-punk band Wire originally disbanded in 1980, it left behind a bank of unrecorded material that rivaled anything the group did on its first three near-perfect records. Hardcore fans knew where to find songs like “Ally in Exile” and “Eels Sang Lino”—the messy, live stopgap Document and Eyewitness—but in March, the band did everyone a favor by releasing a brand-new album of rerecorded and rejiggered versions of what should have been its fourth album. Change Becomes Us is both atmospheric and intensely physical, the sound of an expert art-rock outfit pushing its limits without necessarily amping up the volume. This is how you age gracefully.
