Jack Tatum aka Wild Nothings as made the album of summer 2010; Gemini. This twelve track LP is full of lush Robin Guthrie guitar dream pop on top of rockin' Flock Of Seagulls's sheer catchyness. Its hard not to be upbeat and freewheelin' in it's presences. The album is more than just homage to the pastel shoegazing forefathers of the 80s, JackTatum has carved out bewitching and endearing song after song that rewards with every repeat spin.
The video for album opener "Live In Dreams" with its datomoshed film fragments of past youth merges with the song beautifully. It's certainly up there with Xui Xui's video for best pop promo Ive seen so far this year.
