|The many different covers for Nocturne|
So it is finally here! The newest album by the always great dream-pop group, Wild Nothing. This newest album is called Nocturne and it is the band's second album. It has a lot of variation in it. There isn't just one single kind of sound to Nocturne, which is a good thing. So many times I have found myself bored halfway through an album because all of the songs sound the same. Bands like The Drums and Sigur Rós often do this to me. Not that their bad bands, in fact they're one of my favorites, it's only that their songs can get repetitive after a while.
When listening to Nocturne I never really got bored. As I said earlier the album has a lot of variation to it. You can tell it was a major thing when making this album. There are slow, dreamy songs like "Through the Grass" and there are faster more indie-pop songs like "Only Heather". My favorite song is "Shadow". The instrumentation is also very diverse through-out the entire album. This all makes for a really well put together sound and composition.
