May 8 may have been Mothers Day, but it was also the date of Wild Nothing’s show at Webster Hall. The day was for our moms, but the night was made for some 80s-inspired rock and roll. Jack Tatum and Wild Nothing came in to support their new album Life of Pause, which was released this spring via Captured Tracks. Support came from labelmates Charlie Hilton.

Wild Nothing at Baby’s All Right (November 23, 2015)

On November 23, Wild Nothing played a last minute show at Baby’s All Right along with Alex G. The combo and venue were as fitting as could be, especially with the prospect of getting to hear some brand new Wild Nothing.

Alex G kicked off the night with another great set. He may be a new artist, but literally every single time I’ve seen him has been a completely different set. The fact that he is able to do this so early into his career is amazing, considering most established bands (including many I love) play the same sets night in and night out. It’s says a lot about him.

The night was used to announce that their new album was called Life Of Pause, and that everyone in attendance would received an exclusive 7″ featuring two songs from the album, “TV Queen” and “To Know You.” It was a pleasant surprise, after a great night of music featuring new songs and old favorites such as “Adore,” “Chinatown,” and “Summer Holiday.”

Wild Nothing at Music Hall of Williamsburg (May 16, 2015)

After catching a set from Lightning Bolt at LPR, I bolted over to Brooklyn to catch Wild Nothings’ New York live return at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The comeback show was a part of a series of show that the band are performing as a part of Converse’s always welcome Rubber Tracks series. The free show sold out pretty much instantly, and featured support from Brooklyn band Journalism.

This was Wild Nothing’s first performance in New York for some time, but they made us feel right at home, opening with their breakthrough single “Summer Holiday.” This live version of Wild Nothing featured DIIV’s synth-player Colin Caulfield (formerly known as Young Man) and EZTV’s drummer Michael Stasiak. They fit in snugly around Tatum and Wild Nothing’s returning members: bassist Jeff Haley and guitarist Nathan Goodman.

Photos: Vampire Weekend, Beach House, Wild Nothing, The Mowglis @ Lollapalooza

By Will Oliver, August 7th 2013 — with 1 comment


With a tight schedule with a lot of hard choices and long walking distances I was only able to run and catch a bit of each set from Vampire Weekend, Beach House, Wild Nothing, and The Mowglis. Vampire Weekend drew one of the biggest crowds at a festival that I’ve ever seen. Beach House sounded great under much drier conditions than the last time I saw them. Wild Nothing were a perfect fit to play on the same stage that The Cure would later play. Young up and comers The Mowglis were fun, and worth seeing just for a kid who climbed a lamp post and hung off a hammock while watching them.

Wild Nothing, Merchandise, Mac DeMarco @ Bowery Ballroom (October 21, 2012)

By Will Oliver, October 25th 2012 — with 1 comment

Seeing a show at Bowery Ballroom with an impressive 1-2-3 punch such as Wild Nothing, Merchandise, and Mac DeMarco was the perfect way to gracefully leave CMJ behind.

Mac DeMarco started things with a very impressive set of songs that were written with many hooks and smooth guitar licks involved. The man is a riot on stage, cracking jokes and goofing around at every second. But when it comes down to the music he doesn’t mess around. Even when he brings his girl on stage kisses her and precedes to carry her as he finishes his last song. Everything about this guy left me impressed.

Merchandise, the 3-piece from Florida, are a band we have been hearing about for a while. They’re album Children Of Desire is pretty solid, and I was looking forward to seeing them live. “Time” was spot-on money live, but the rest could often be hit or miss. The band sounded great at some points, then muddy at others. Not sure if it’s the sound guys fault but something seemed off with the sound. I wasn’t always sold, but when the band did hit their sweet spot, man they can groove. I’ll give them another go next time in town, because something seemed off.

Last but certainly not least, were Wild Nothing. It’s been a little over two years since my first time seeing them, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I certainly didn’t expect the lights out knockout performance from Jack Tatum and the rest of the band. They sounded simply incredible and on point to every degree. A beautiful light/color display but the band in a blend of delicate pink and sea blue that helped me get even further immersed in their sound. They ran through everything you could have asked for, giving an undeniable batch of energy and life to the songs that you don’t quite hear on record.

I knew the band would have improved a bit, but I didn’t expect the stellar performance that they delivered. Wild Nothing have grown tremendous amounts. Go see them live immediately if you get the shot.

[music video]: Wild Nothing – Paradise (Starring Michelle Williams)

By Will Oliver, October 23rd 2012 — with 1 comment

Wild Nothing have released a music video for “Paradise that stars the 3x Acadamy Award Nominated actress Michelle Williams. Matthew Amato directed it.

Williams picked the song out of a choice of three, and is followed as she travels via flight and near Niagra Falls. It includes a monologue that she recorded for the video. It’s a great video, one that the band should certainly be proud of. Watch it below via Pitchfork.

Wild Nothing are back with a new song titled “Shadow” that will come off Nocturne, the new album and follow-up to their debut album Gemini. Wild Nothing continue to give us dreamy music that drips with nostalgia with every passing second. Jack strives to create what pop music sounds like in his mind, and by doing so, he captures what it sounds like in mine as well/
