“Thunder Clatter” by Wild Cub, from the Nashville, TN bands’ debut album Youth, released on August 14th, 2012 via Big Light Recordings.  The video was directed by Will Holland and features the band performing with a multitude of instrument-armed friends.

Wild Cub is centered on DeWitt and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Bullock (Pico vs. Island Trees, Jessie Baylin, Madi Diaz), and Youth was written and recorded over two months in Bullock’s house, which was turned into a multi-room studio. Produced in collaboration with musician (Tallest Trees) and photographer Dabney Morris, and mixed with Ephraim Nagler (You Are Plural, The Velvet Teen), the album combines live takes and programmed sounds, and was recorded digitally before the files were run through a TASCAM 4-track tape recorder, often used for intimate home demos.
