WILD NOTHING - INDIGO VINYL (LTD. ED. TRANSPARENT BLUE)
LIMITED EDITION TRANSPARENT BLUE VINYL
Release Date: 31st August 2018
Limited edition pressing of only 500. Wild Nothing, aka the solo project of Jack Tatum, brings us his fourth album and his most confident version of the new sound he has been moving towards since his critically-acclaimed 2010 debut album Gemini. Since then, Tatum has tried a funkier, more up-beat and organic take on the nostalgia of the 1980's with varying success. With Indigo, he nails it and encaptures the man vs. machine era of the 80's with some beautiful orchestral motifs as well, coming off very Cure-esque.

"On Indigo, the fourth Wild Nothing album there is a return to the fresh, transcendent sweep of his debut, 2010’s Gemini, a culmination of heights reached, paths traveled, and lessons learned while creating the follow-ups, Nocturne and Life of Pause. Indigo finds Tatum at his most efficient, calculated, and confident—resulting in an artful blend of hi-fi humanity and technology that fires on all circuits and synapses. To make Indigo, Tatum confronted the Man vs. Machine dichotomy by seizing on the surrounding synergy. Finding the right people to work on the album was integral, as was the proper place to record it. So, Tatum booked four days at legendary Sunset Sound’s Studio. Afterwards, producer Jorge Elbrecht (Ariel Pink, Gang Gang Dance, Japanese Breakfast) and Tatum built out the rest of the album’s sound by adding new parts and repurposing sounds from Tatum’s demos. The resulting Indigo is its own cyborg world, utilizing the artful mechanisms of human touch with the precision of technology to create the classic, pristine sound Tatum had been seeking his entire career. From the opening drum beat, chiming guitar, and sweeping synth of Letting Go to Tatum’s Bryan Ferry vocal turn on Oscillation to the ’80s-heavy blips, clicks, and strut of Partners in Motion, it’s clear that Indigo is at once vintage Wild Nothing and a bold, new leap into a bigger arena."
