Backing off the mic just a bit, Wild Light – a group of young New Englanders taking a bit of time off from their luck defying role as warm-up to the Arcade Fire – let it all go-“ooooh” in opener “Call Home”. It’s a less is more kind of moment…less because the voice doesn’t journey through the amp but rather straight from the fleshy windpipes of those on stage, more because of the collective pulse it gives the already emotionally charged compositions. Better yet, it’s a moment that is repeated throughout the entirety of this CMJ performance at the FADER Sideshow.

Watching Wild Light in the thick of their performance, its not a far stretch to see why one of the world’s biggest rock band chose to invite the little known quartet along for their latest North American and European tours. Stripped of the violin, auxiliary instrumentation, and church blast pipe organ that lie at the aid of their new found Canadian friends, Wild Light go for broke with what they have…epic story lines, love sick, three-party vocal melodies, and piano pounding songcraft. It’s a serious mix they sport. But most meaningful music is…just ask Arcade Fire. – David Pitz
