Wavves, 'Wavvves' (Fat Possum)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Spencer Kornhaber

Theoretically, this sophomore album from San Diego one-man band Nathan Williams shouldn't be hard to replicate. For song titles: Pick a sunny descriptor such as "beach" or "summer" and affix it to "demon" or "goth." For music: Use a Yak Bak to record some catchy doo-wop crooning, schwasted punk drumming, and shitgaze guitar fuzz. For lyrics: Remember your burned-out, bored teenage years, and then exaggerate how much fun you had.The result: an album exuding wall-punching energy, ugly noise, and raging nostalgia for stale bong water and sunburn.
