    It was only eight months ago that Wild Nothing treated us to a near-perfect album. Now they're just spoiling us.

    [A] sprite, beguiling collection of songs.

    There's a striking sense of command and confidence evident on this EP.

    This EP is dressed exactly how it sounds: a little more vibrant and a little more stoned.
  5. Sometimes pushing the envelope may be a grandiose gesture, other times more subtle, and while Wild Nothing may never be a Brian Eno, there’s certainly nothing wrong with being a Felt or Go-Betweens.

    A laid-back, well-considered and joyous effort to swing you through the summer months.

    The songs on Empty Estate shine and shimmer, but one can’t help but feel that Tatum has run himself into a dead end here.

    Actually, I didn't get why Wild Nothing changed their style this time. Nocture and the Gemeni are quite brilliant! In my opinion, they should keep the old vibe. Expand
