Wild Nothing Empty Estate EP on LP + MP3 Download
Empty Estate is the follow-up EP to Wild Nothing's critically acclaimed sophomore full-length Nocturne, which received several year-end accolades including album of the year in Under The Radar and iTunes. The 7-song EP was recorded in Brooklyn at Gary’s Electric by Al Carlson in January of 2013.
In 2010, 21 year old Jack Tatum released one of the finest cult pop records of the summer whilst ensconced in his senior year of college in Blacksburg, VA, a small mid-Atlantic town better known for producing football fans and engineers than musicians. The critically acclaimed debut Gemini was underpinned with summery childhood longings, and shot through with the instant dichotomy of anxiety and almost whimsical paranoia. The album, which was home recorded by Tatum and rooted heavily in 80′s indie-pop, quickly gained popularity throughout the internet.
It's follow-up, Nocturne then is a window into Tatum’s “ideal world” of pop music. Written largely while living in Savannah, GA during 2011, the songs that became Nocturne speak to a new Wild Nothing where the lines between Jack’s influences and personality have been further blurred. The album features some open references to past music just as Gemini did, but it’s also an album that feels much less rooted in anything in particular and, well, more adult.
