We've been waiting patiently for New Hampshire/Boston indie dudes WILD LIGHT to blow up -- it's kind of inevitable, and we're not just saying that because one of 'em used to be in a band with Win from Arcade Fire -- so we're stoked to hear that they've finally wrapped up the recording of their as-yet-untitled debut record for Almost Gold Recordings (Black Kids, Peter Bjorn and John, Does It Offend You Yeah?), which was produced by superproducer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith) and engineered by Dough Boehm (French Kicks, Katy Perry).
We attempted shooting some video of these guys before they flew out to LA to record, but LiveNation goons put the screws to us. Trust us on this: not to be missed. We've only got a track to share from their previous record, but expect new shit when they get home, having returned from the six-week session "sleep-deprived, a few pounds heavier, and one album richer." Just off a ridonculous gig as part of NH homie/San Antonio Spur Matt Bonner's "Sneakers and Speakers Charity Rockfest" (with the Felice Brothers and . . . our dude Edan the Humble Magnificent?!) they'll be at Great Scott on August 3 to open for recent NME coverboys the Enemy UK.
