Originally the solo studio project of Athens-based singer-songwriter Matt Martin, Wanderwild has become a for-real band with the recent additions of guitarist Ian White, bassist Taylor Cotton and drummer Wes Gregory. On the group’s debut LP, In Due Time, out Friday, Martin and his new bandmates make good on the promise of last year’s sleek Fleeting EP, crafting an artful and ambitious full-length that pulses and shimmers its way through nine thoughtfully composed tracks. Fellow local indie-rock centrists White Violet and Atlanta-via-Kentucky dreamer Rose Hotel share Friday’s Caledonia bill.
