Wild Nothing – “A Dancing Shell” Video

For the upcoming Empty Estate EP, Wild Nothing is embedding its dream-pop output with off-kilter elements. Its first single “A Dancing Shell” is flecked with free jazz and feels subtly indebted to Talking Heads’ “This Must Be The Place,” a strong turn from Wild Nothing’s straight-forward rocking but still born from the chimeric influence we… More »

Coachella 2013 Saturday: The Postal Service, Phoenix, The Make-Up, & More

Before we get into Saturday, let’s not bury the day’s big lede: R. Kelly joined Phoenix on stage to perform his biggest crossover that isn’t from the Space Jam soundtrack, “Ignition (Remix).” Not quite the Daft Punk cameo folks rumored, definitely worthy of its own post. Which is here. More »

Wild Nothing – “Only Heather” Video

Wild Nothing’s 2012 release Nocturne has not been laid to rest. The latest track from the LP to get visuals is “Only Heather.” No spoilers, but a video that just features a man walking down the street, it so adeptly displays the physical arrest one goes through when feeling overwhelmed by their own feelings. Check… More »

Report & Photos From FYF Fest 2012

Ever since I was old enough to complain, my dad took great pleasure in the act of dragging my always-resistant ass to music festivals. A summer full of glorious music for him meant a summer full of unstifled groans from me. His taste in music back then — folk, folk, and nothing but folk –… More »

Beach House, Wild Nothing @ House Of Blues San Diego, San Diego 7/1/12

It seems like only yesterday that my first batch of photographs for Stereogum were of Beach House opening for The Walkmen in 2009. A few albums later, Beach House are headlining their own tour and selling out venues across the country in support of their latest collection of ethereal dream-pop, Bloom. Wild Nothing added their… More »

Wild Nothing – “Nowhere”

It’s been a while since we heard from hazy VA indie rocker Wild Nothing, but that’s about to change as Jack Tatum & Co. (we assume) prep a 7” for release in February. The A-Side, “Nowhere,” just hit the web and it’s a definite curveball; it’s twangy! And I think there’s an accordion in it! More »

Pitchfork Festival 2011: Saturday Recap

Pitchfork Fest Friday inspired thoughts about the intimate and situational appeal of much of today’s crop of independent artists, and the challenges inherent to translating that allure in sunny festival climes.
