Loving the stuff I've heard so far, esp. Summer Holiday and Live in Dreams. Wistful nostalgic pop with Marr-ish jangle. Debut album apparently coming out soon

thats the one. i havent heard that single, but i liked the first one. i think i ordered this LP, too. based on my prior experience w cap-trax, i think that means i won't actually receive it HEYO

aw I like the godawful Kate Bush cover. But maybe only because I really really like the synth sound on the string hook bit. None of the few of their own songs I've heard have done much for me, though.

Warmest Chord is a new British record label run by folks from Rough Trade and Make Mine. The label places a great deal of emphasis on design and packaging, and every release will come with a limited edition screenprint, as well as a digital mixtape created by the band whose music is on the release. The artist who designed the release’s screenprint will also revamp the label’s logo with every new release.

The first release on Warmest Chord is Evertide, a new EP from the recently BNM’ed lo-fi pop project Wild Nothing. Up above, you can download one of the three tracks from Evertide, which is available now in a ridiculously limited edition of 75 and also as a digital album. (You can stream another track on the label’s Bandcamp page.)

Franz Vesolt designed the two-in-one phosphorescent/glow-in-the-dark screenprint packaging, and every record will come numbered, labeled, and stamped. We’ve got the tracklist below.

Evertide:

01 Your Rabbit Feet
02 Golden Haze
03 Take Me In

Probably my fav band of the past 3 months of the year, I actually don't like some of the singing and some of the lyrics - but it works as a whole. Their albums so far have been really consistent.

John Lennon, Sunday, 19 December 2010 05:39 (seven years ago) Permalink

The ep is marvellous - I played the LP a lot but it pales next to Golden Haze.

yeah i'm pretty much in agreement with the above. the album sounds great but most of it doesn't stick with me as much as the singles/EP

I really like them.

ENBB, Wednesday, 6 April 2011 00:08 (seven years ago) Permalink

Saw them the other week - very weak performance, absolutely no enthusiasm (& yeah I realize the dream/shoegaze-esque formatting, but come on and tap your foot at the least). Love their last album's artwork tho, really one of my favorites from that year.

kelpolaris, Wednesday, 6 April 2011 00:48 (seven years ago) Permalink

That "performance" sounds perfect!

Spencer Chow, Wednesday, 6 April 2011 00:58 (seven years ago) Permalink

ha, well i was pretty conscious of the archetypal shoegazer provisions for a "concert" but these guys have just far too melodic working material to just stand around and insist "this is all about the music, man". i GET IT with mbv and such, but in their cases it really was both essential to their methods and allure, whereas these dudes i felt where just doing it because they knew their predecessors did. slowdive/ride/swirlies did plenty of rocking out on stage, and had as equally mellow songs.

kelpolaris, Wednesday, 6 April 2011 03:03 (seven years ago) Permalink

Swirlies didn't go nuts when I saw them, but I was distracted by the amazing songs so my memory is fuzzy.

Wacky Way Lounge (Evan), Wednesday, 6 April 2011 03:14 (seven years ago) Permalink

agreed. The EP is just fucking awesome. Love the LP too.

I saw them recently and really liked it, my only complaint was that several songs were cut in half! (stopped verses short of the end for some reason - every song was like 1:45 long, weird)

I haven't got around to hearing this yet, but thanks for sharing that McBoing-Boing, it sounds great and on first listen sounds like one of the best things he's done to date. I take it that the rest of the album doesn't quite match up to this?

The Dave Grohl of ILX (Turrican), Monday, 8 February 2016 21:23 (two years ago) Permalink

Right. The rest of the album isn't bad at all, but it's not as grab-you-by-the-collar as "To Know You".

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Monday, 8 February 2016 22:01 (two years ago) Permalink

I'll definitely still be checking it out, loved Nocturne and the EP that came after.

The Dave Grohl of ILX (Turrican), Monday, 8 February 2016 22:04 (two years ago) Permalink

You could tell from the first four or five notes of Nocturne that this was an artist transitioning from cassette indie to full-on Record Collection Rock. This is a good thing, and both Nocturne and the EP-that-nobody-can-remember-the-name-of were really excellent for their depth of texture and references.

The problem, for me at least, is that the thing Tatum appears to have spent the least amount of time synthesizing is the very thing he needed more than all those Berlin-era Bowie references: how to be an engaging singer with good lyrics and varied, compelling vocal delivery.

fields of salmon, Wednesday, 10 February 2016 00:48 (two years ago) Permalink

Massive Carole King influence on this one. Also, he's managed to produce a cover tune of My Bloody Valentine covering Wire's "41ºN 91ºW" and also cover Foxygen's "How Can You Really?" one right after the other. More to follow.

I still have a lot of time for Nocturne and the Empty Estate EP. The last album had some great moments too, although was a bit uneven on the whole. I can't get into Gemini much.

yeah "letting go" is real good too and "partners in motion" has a nice groove

ciderpress, Monday, 13 August 2018 03:27 (two months ago) Permalink

When the mid 80s were over, I really missed the guitar sound in "Partners in Motion" (and in places on the Tornado Wallace album from last year) and I'm overjoyed it's finally okay to make a guitar sound like that again—because it wasn't for a very long time, unless you were recording elevator music.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 13 August 2018 03:31 (two months ago) Permalink

its just chorus and reverb i think

ciderpress, Monday, 13 August 2018 03:44 (two months ago) Permalink

There's something really crystalline and compressed about it beyond chorus.

really enjoying this so far. it feels like he took lessons from Life Of Pause (which i wasn't super into and he, from interviews, doesn't sound like he quite was either) and just applies those sophistipop tendencies to his usual soundscapey popcraft.

The new one is basically Nocturne II, but the songwriting isn't anywhere near as consistent in terms of quality and while the production on Nocturne helped his vocals to blend in with the music unobtrusively, here I can't take my mind off the fact that Tatum is a weak singer.
