Product Description

Product Description

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 its 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 its own reality.

I agree with JT Lowe's initial review in many ways (and interestingly I too found this gem whilst stumbling through You Tube).

What John Tatum has managed to achieve with Nocturne is to present an in your face throwback to "some" great 80s sounds, but it's so well produced, and so nicely arranged, that I think the term throwback is a bit unfair.
Sure there is a wide range of influences and inspirations from the likes of The Cure, Joy Division, Talk Talk - BUT for an album that draws on such definitive noises from the past, it stands up so well in the inevitable comparisons, and sounds superior in may ways to so much chart material of the last few years that it's easily EASILY in my top 5 of 2012.

The synths are warm and full of reverb. The guitars chime and ring. The bass is a bit more jazz than pop in places. The riffs are uncluttered and effective. The vocals are smooth and ethereal, but always with a strong melody. Nocturne almost sounds like shoegaze in places, but although the drums are simple and beat along like you've got your arms out and your head down, those beats have got the nodding head factor all over. There is also a lot of air in the recordings - it feels large and spacious, and it will fill your head and make you realise that if anything, nobody back in the 80s created an album this consistent or good sounding, even if the noises that predate this recording were being used in earnest for the first time.

It's an "albums album" - no big hit singles (who cares), but all great tracks and no filler.

Well conceived Mr Tatum.

Found Wild Nothing whilst randomly hopping about on youtube, not a big fan of Gemini but this album just caught me and felt perfect.

Listened to a playlist many times on aforementioned internet site and decided to fork out for the CD, very glad I did. Nocturne has kinda worn thin through the listens, it's a great track but doesn't have the staying power of all the other fantastic tracks. The album itself is a pure joy, not a weak song on there.

For me it is one of the defining albums of this year, despite the 80's influences.

This album is fantastic, very consistent and has a great vibe. The vinyl especially is wonderful due to the interchangeable covers!
