Wild Nothing – Nocturne – LP
2012 album from the Dream Pop band. Gemini (2010) was written before there were Wild Nothing fans or even a live band; Nocturne is different. The possessiveness of Nocturne is inherent in it’s gentle harmonies, orchestrated synths, wandering voice, and songs that speak of his post-Gemini experiences as he explores new paradoxes of pop. And yet Nocturne isn’t obvious, it is a strange and distinctive musical beast, the product of an obsessive pop vision that creates it’s own reality.
