Planning Ahead: Wild Nothing at Red 7

Generally, I like to preview a show just a few days before it happens because I feel like you have a short attention span and it helps to have a gentle reminder. In this case, I'm giving you a full week because I think the show will sell-out and if it doesn't then it should. Next Wednesday you have the chance to catch one of the buzziest acts of 2012 at Red 7 in the form of Wild Nothing. The new record from Wild Nothin comes out next Tuesday and based solely on the singles, it's going to be a monster. It's part Real Estate, part DIIV and part Cut//Copy. In other words, it's fucking brilliant and I can already tell you right now that it's going to make my top 10 list for best albums of 2012. Don't take my word for it though, stream the whole record via Soundcloud now. You'll find it embedded after the jump. While you're listening, you'll want to grab yourself some $10 tickets to next Wednesday night's show, you can thank me later.

As I mentioned Nocturne will be released via Captured Tracks next Tuesday. I pre-ordered the limited edition pressing on light blue vinyl and if it looks half as nice as the 7" for Shadow then you might want to consider doing the same.
