Reviewed 2020-01-21 
Live recording of Wild Nothing’s set at Brooklyn Steel in Nov. 2018, recently released following their latest LP Indigo. More rock and less twee than their usual, this live version brings out elements not present in the early dream pop records— stronger bass, drums. Some great tracks here—highly recommended!
