If a Chameleons fan ever lifted his or her arms to the sky in 1986 and shouted, “Dream pop will never die!” they would have really called it. From Belle & Sebastian to Air and au courant New Wave revivalists Beach House, a lot of bands have taken cues from smooth-toned sonic textures courtesy of Robert Smith, cribbed bass lines from Peter Hook, and copped a breathy melody or two from Jim Reid. Blacksburg, Va.’s Wild Nothing does it better than most. Led by singer-guitarist-auteur Jack Tatum, the band writes catchy first-wave 120 Minutes throwback gems that play like bible verses from the astoundingly undated C86 playbook. Basically, if you own a Go-Betweens record or two, you should probably add Wild Nothing’s 2012 full-length Nocturne to your collection as well. Nashville’s similarly New Wave-obsessed (and most excellent) treasure Ponychase and shoegazy Brooklyn blog darlings DIIV (pronounced “Dive”) open.
