Editorial Reviews

Led by Nathan Daniel William, who, when not watching Cops or drinking 40's in the park, blogs on classic rap and records waves of effortlessly great slack / crust / beach / punk compressed into 4 track cassettes in his San Diego bedroom.

By N. Spadaro on July 24, 2009
Format: Audio CD
It's hard to describe Wavves as 'pop', by any stretch. Just look at the ingredients: layers of reverb, often incomprehensible lyrics, and heavily distorted guitar riffs; all fly in the face of even the most liberal definitions of pop music. But then, you listen to Wavvves (confusing, yes), their second full album, and before long, you realize that there's no way their music can reasonably be described as anything but.

The songs here sound like artifacts of the sixties- somewhere between the straightforward, sugary harmonies that dominated the earlier part of the decade and the heady exoticism of the later psychedelic movement. But Wavves are, at the same time, unmistakably a product of today- working in the same vein as Times New Viking and SoCal neighbors No Age, they use the thick sonic texture that drenches their music as an instrument, itself. The result is something far more interesting than a couple of kids simply reappropriating the sounds of an earlier generation. It's music that keys into some of the most basic ideas of what pop music IS: immediate, affecting, timeless.

What a great way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. Distorted overload candy from the local West Coast factory. This is the good shit, a nasty little lo-fi Dinosaur Jr via Skip Spence type psych-pop noise offering just in time for the Olympics.

Take equal parts The Ventures and Surfaris, add in the tracks from Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music, stir real thoroughly and this is what you get. Good experimental sunshine music! Definately recommended!

one of wavves finests albums. lyrically the album is not the greatest but the musical composition, the distortion, and the raw lo-fi sound makes it absolutely phenomenal.

This is far overdue. i've loved wavves since their first demos, and this album is a great first lp. It's catchy, but in a subtle way that keeps you engaged. Despite the oddities (see Rainbows Everywhere, etc.) Nathan's pop sensibilities are finely tuned and he keeps it pretty simple. i don't know where they'll move to as they continue recording, but for now i'm loving it. No that was not a McDonalds reference, just a statement about me loving this album. So back off.
