Adult Nights - Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

PopMatters - 80
Based on rating 8/10

The realm of Indie Pop (capitalization intended) is a mystical place. There are the usual nymphs and faeries, goblins and ghouls, sorcerers and witches. Some boys sound like girls; some girls sound like robots; and some machines sound like both. It’s also a peaceful place, for the most part: Harsh words get thrown like a javelin only when accompanied with a tear and a wink, and no one stays mad for long.

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

They may hail from "New Hampshire," but Wild Light's hearts -- and sound -- belong to California. Adult Nights' earnest, ever so slightly bittersweet guitar pop feels descended from generations of Californian bands: echoes of the Beach Boys' harmonies and backing vocals, Weezer's crunchy guitars and vulnerable lyrics, and Rooney and Phantom Planet's sun-dappled hooks pop up throughout Adult Nights. Though Wild Light doesn't add anything radically new to this tradition, they uphold it with charm, particularly on the songs that use the Golden State as their muse.
