Wild Light

Good day, ladies and gents. Just so you know, you can download Wild Light’s EP, and by the time you read this possibly more, on our free music page. My favorite tracks by the band are “California State Of Mind” … “Heart Attack” … and “New Year’s Eve” …

Wild Light recently joined our show. They’re from New Hampshire and have toured with The Killers, as well as Darius’ favorite band Tapes n’ Tapes. Well, maybe they’re not his favorite band, but he was a little too pumped up to see them at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on their headlining tour last year.

Wild Light rolled into the Highline Ballroom on Friday night as direct support to Bell X1. If you haven’t heard of Bell X1, they sound similar to Keane and Glasvegas. And if you haven’t heard of any of those bands, it’s time to take a shower and throw away that Slayer shirt from 1986. The metal purists that listen to our show are planning a revolt. I can see it now.

– stated audiences on their current tour with Bell X1 have been smaller than they expected
– has nothing but good things to say about Bell X1
– talks about their first break being when they opened for Arcade Fire at The Orpheum in Boston
– plan is to get off the road and start writing after this tour
– says their drummer is an electrical engineer
– talked about their touring with Tapes N’ Tapes
– spoke about their debut record, Adults Nights
– thoughts on possibly releasing new music on vinyl
– gave his thoughts on New York City and calls it “the best city in the country”
– talked about the bathroom attendants at Highline Ballroom

    You can color me IMPRESSED. You actually listened for once. I caught these guys when they opened for The Killers in Seattle and have been hooked like crazy ever since.

    In my 4 years as a listener, Andrew finally took my advice and got a band on the show I feel I found first. Haha!

    One post does not have to do with the other. I don’t know this band from a hole in the wall but keep an open mind and stop it with this crap.

    I was just on their Myspace page and that California song is catchy as hell. I like the harmonies too.

    Zebo is on to something. Hmmm…

    The only TnT I’m passionate about is the AC/DC song.

    I just listened to this band and they’re decent but I don’t see what separates them from the rest of their indie rock peers.

    Any shots he takes at Darius are playful and I’m sure aren’t taken seriously. I give AKF credit because over the years you guys have had so many artists on before they broke – M83, Buckcherry, Great Northern, etc. I’m more of a metal guy but like getting a little dose of other genres as well.

    Darius is not alone. I saw Tapes N Tapes at Irving Plaza last year and they were great. The band name sucks but what can you do.

    Wild Light was not on that tour but I read about them in Rolling Stone a little while back. For those of you that gave up on that mag, check it out because they’re slowly coming back to form and have ditched the oversized version.

    This might be a breakout band. I’m wondering why Great Northern is still in some obscurity.

    Indie rock sucks and anyone who is dating a female that listens to it should die.

    …only because you’re smart and realize metal girls are all 500 pounds and are wildebeasts.

    Why do you open your contests to college students? Why do you have to be of collegiate age to win shit from you guys? What about the rest of your audience? I wouldn’t be trying to go to the show but the policy is total bullshit.

    I feel the need to issue a response to gblockx who has raised an issue that others have sent private messages about over the last few years.

    All Knowing Force values ALL of its listeners. I have personally responded to ALL of your emails since this show started over five years ago. A lot of us are not in the best financial positions, and I know college-aged folks can also have a lot of parental financial support. However, I truly believe that most college students are on tight budgets and can really be helped out by getting tickets to a show, or a CD, or a t-shirt. There really isn’t anything more to it than that.

    There is your professional response – gblockx – to a very childish, public diatribe.

    It’s trendy to write songs about Cali. See Phantom Planet. This band has substance, unlike Phantom Planet.

    I wonder what the radio edit of that California song sounds like. F-bomb central.

    Did I strike a nerve? Get those panties out of the bunch. I’m right after all.
