January 31 street date. Often considered a secondary or transitional format, Wild Nothing has always used the EP to further explore new ideas and influences. "Laughing Gas" is no exception. On the third EP from Wild Nothing, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jack Tatum delves deeper into the territory where he thrives: namely, the synth and sophisti-pop of the 1980s. Working within a more mechanical and synthetic framework than his previous releases, Wild Nothing continues to delicately toe the line between the organic and the unnatural. These are still pop songs, but there's an underlying sense of uneasiness that threads the music together. Recorded with the help of Jorge Elbrecht, these five songs were originally imagined alongside last year's "Indigo" and were written and tracked simultaneously with the album.
