Berlin Gig Forecast | Wild Nothing + Woods

Who | Wild Nothing

When | Thursday, June 23

Where | Lido

For fans of: Neon Indian, Toro y Moi, Future Islands

It’s difficult to tell whether or not Wild Nothing should be considered a solo act: the main man behind the magic, Jack Tatum, records everything on the albums himself, only in live settings does he enlist a band to flesh it all out. Either way, the indie dream pop outfit produces the kind of intricate, rich sound that has the ability to envelope you. Their latest release, Life of Pause, strikes the perfect balance between structure and free-flow, with echoing vocals and swirling synths floating atop rhythmically-driven instrumentals and grooving bass lines. The smart composition makes for music that’s both challenging, yet fun and danceable.


Who | Woods
When | Monday, June 27
Where | Kantine am Berghain

For fans of: Timber Timbre, Here We Go Magic, Real Estate

Brooklyn indie mainstay Woods have been making music for over a decade now, reaching a point at which many bands could find it tough to put out something new and fresh. Enter City Sun Eater in the River of Light, their ninth full-length LP released this April, which finds Woods straying from their folksier roots in favor of a soupy fusion of psychedelic, African jazz, reggae, and  Tropicalia influences. All of this just in time for the summer mood.
