What We're Listening To - Wild Light's "Adult Nights"

Well, this title is a bit of a misnomer.

I've had this album as a preview since the beginning of January.

Hell, we even did an interview with them.

And it sat on my iPod virtual shelf, collecting dust.

But then I heard Shelby's show from a few weeks ago, and I put it back in rotation.

And I forgot how incredibly solid this album is. If their big label promotes it right, this could be one of the sleeper hits of the year.

he single, "California on My Mind" won't be on the radio. But maybe Surf Generation. Or Red House. Or Canyon City.

This is the pop that made you fall in love with the Killers, or Tokyo Police Club. It's sunny. It's clearly rooted in 80s synth. The lyrics are light and don't really delve into too much.

If that wasn't enough, the boys of Wild Light premiered a new video for California on My Mind. A sleepy bored Marilyn Monroe impersonator singing Fuck California? Brilliant.
