Wild Nothing : Empty Estate

Jack Tatum’s Wild Nothing haven’t wasted any time returning to the studio following the release of their acclaimed sophomore LP Nocturne last year. On May 14 the Captured Tracks label will put out the Empty Estate EP, featuring seven new tracks that utilise new instruments (vocoder! SAXOPHONE!) and production techniques (courtesy of Al Carlson at Gary’s Electric, Brooklyn) to explore a playful side to Tatum’s songwriting that in the past has been largely eclipsed by the band’s trademark jangling dream-pop. The record’s colourful cover was painted by Eric Shaw, and the limited edition red 12″ also comes with a bunch of goodies including a poster, stickers and a button; check out the equally artistic video for lead single “A Dancing Shell” below.



About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
