After playing in bands Jack and the Whale and Facepaint while in Blacksburg, Jack Tatum began recording under the name Wild Nothing in the summer of 2009. By 2010, he released “Gemini,” an album rooted in ’80s indie pop that became a cult favorite. “Gemini” gained so much popularity that it was featured as one of the best 50 albums of the year by both Pitchfork and Amazon. While it’s usually a one-man pop band in the studio, on the road Tatum grabs his friends to form a full band that creates an even deeper sound. Tatum’s sophomore album, “Nocturne,” is scheduled to be released Aug. 28. Expect to hear new tracks as well as classic favorites when Wild Nothing performs with White Laces and Super Vacations at Strange Matter on Sunday, Aug. 5, at 8 p.m. $15. strangematterrva.com.
