Album Note - Wild Nothing: Gemini

MILES OF TRANE: MAYBE. I'm still deciding on this one, whether it almost takes me where I want to go but comes up short, as does Animal Collective, or whether it gets me over the top so I can coast. The reference to Animal Collective isn't coincidental because it reminds me of them, although I doubt the Internet can stir up as much unwarranted love for Wild Nothing as it has for Animal Collective, whose many fans will surely disregard my disregard for them. I can't find any critics who hear the similarities, so maybe I'm hallucinating. But without any delusion, I can definitely say I like it more than Animal Collective.
