Wild Nothing - Letting Go

Indigo is the title of Wild Nothing's fourth studio album, released today, August 31, via the independent label Captured Tracks.

The album is produced by visual artist/producer Jorge Elbrecht (Ariel Pink, Japanese Breakfast, Frankie Rose) with Jack Tatum, the man behind the moniker Wild Nothing.

I wanted it to sound like a classic studio record, as close as I could get it there. It just boils down to me wanting to fit into some larger narrative, musically, in terms of these artists I love," Jack said about Indigo. "The records that have influenced the actual sound of Indigo are by Roxy Music, Kate Bush, and Fleetwood Mac; Roxy Music's Avalon is one of my favorite records ever. I think about how my music will age. Ideas of ‘timeless’ are going to be different - so if Indigo is not timeless then it's at least 'out of time.'"

A natural progression from Wild Nothing's previous work, Indigo is a state-of-the-art dream-pop album, a must not only for lovers of the genre, but for everybody with a crack for seductive melodies and layered textures.

Wild Nothing - Life Of Pause

Life Of Pause is the third studio album by American indie rock act Wild Nothing, released on February 19, 2016 on Captured Tracks (US) and Bella Union (UK). Produced by Thom Monahan (Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Vetiver, Pernice Brothers) the album was recorded over several weeks in Los Angeles and Stockholm, Sweden, mostly by primary member Jack Tatum.

Life Of Pause was influenced by the Philly soul, as the lush instrumental arrangements and the funk, jazz and disco elements that enrich the 11 songs of the album can clearly prove.

As Jack stated, he wanted to have a more organic or gelled sound and to give his audience a sense of physical space; he surely succeeded in his goal, and Life Of Pause is indeed his most mature work yet, a strong development of the original dream-pop concept of Wild Nothing's previous works.
