Wild Nothing Discuss Nocturne

Building Something Out of Nothing

Aug 21, 2012

Wild Nothing were serendipitously plucked from the ether back in 2010, when Captured Tracks head Mike Sniper listened to their demos, on Myspace no less, and contacted Jack Tatum, who essentially is the studio end of band, to make a record. The resulting effort, Gemini, was a resounding success both commercially and critically. More

Under the Radar's Summer 2010 issue is a special issue we're calling the Wasted on the Youth Issue.

Many of the articles include childhood or teenage photos of the musicians interviewed.

Life of Pause

Life of Pause

Captured Tracks

Feb 19, 2016

Counterintuitive as it may seem, Life of Pause, Jack Tatum's third full-length as Wild Nothing, is a work that makes quite a fuss over sounding less fussy than the records that preceded it. Perhaps sensing that he'd reached an absolute dream pop peak with 2012's immaculately produced and composed Nocturne, Tatum has begun struggling against his perfectionist instincts, resulting in an album that's willfully rough-hewn, scattered, and label-resistant.

After the dizzying heights reached by 2012's Nocturnereaders with a keen memory for lists may recall it being Under the Radar's album of the yearone could hardly blame Jack Tatum, aka Wild Nothing, for settling for more of the same with a follow-up record in a couple of years. More

Captured Tracks

Aug 27, 2012

Jack Tatum, aka Wild Nothing, released 2010's Gemini while wrapping up his college degree at age 21. It quickly became the Little Album That Could, earning wide Internet praise for its unabashedly '80s post-punk, dream pop, and C86-leaning tunes (not to mention that striking/creepy cover art). Two years later, he's obligated by all of rock history to churn out a "mature" follow-up full-length, informed by a few years of being on the road eating up life's contradictions. More

Beach House (With Wild Nothing), El Rey Theatre, Los Angeles, CA

July 4th, 2012

Jul 05, 2012

One does not turn to Beach House for effusive stage banter. With a series of shadows dancing across their faces from sidelights, and backlighting provided by a sheet of theatrical stars, the Baltimore-based duo kept chatting at Tuesday night’s show to a bare minimum. That is, save for a few perfunctorily thank yous. “It’s not that I don’t want to talk to you,” said keyboard/vocalist Victoria Legrand, acknowledging the duo’s seemingly aloof presence, “It’s just that it’s complicated.”   More
