Nite Creatures

Release date: November 27, 2020
Label: Decca
Nite Creatures is the debut album from polyrhythmic polymath Joe Wong, the composer behind sensations Russian Doll, The Midnight Gospel, Master of None, and Awkwafina is Nora from Queens. The lush, deeply personal album marks the first time the Milwaukee-born, Los Angeles-based musician's total and unfiltered creative vision has been on display, a bold exploration of life and loss abetted by Mary Timony (Ex Hex, Helium), Steven Drozd (Flaming Lips), Jon Natchez (The War On Drugs), harpist Mary Lattimore, Craig Wedren (Shudder to Think), Anna Waronker (That Dog), and a 24-piece orchestra. The album was mixed by sonic genius Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, The Flaming Lips, MGMT) and mastered by Bob Weston. Nite Creatures ''a collection of 10 baroque, ruminative, gently psychedelic songs“ lives in the pops and crackles between the Summer of Love and start of the Seventies “ the acid-tinged era of Scott Walker, Love, the Zombies and Fairport Convention.'' Though technically his first LP, Wong's melodies, beats and insight have already conquered multiple platforms. While launching his fruitful career as one of the go-to composers of the streaming TV era, he was the drummer anchoring the Mary Timony Band, Marnie Stern, and Brooklyn noise-punks Parts & Labor. As an esteemed podcaster, he created the world's most popular drumming podcast, The Trap Set. Wong is quick to note that his career as a film composer, accompanist and interviewer prepared him for his solo bid.
