When not watching cops or drinking 40s in the park, Nathan Daniel William blogs on classic rap and records waves of effortlessly great slack / crust / beach / punk compressed onto 4 track cassette in his San Diego bedroom.
I can only imagine that room. Thanks to the eager bloggers, you may have already heard Wavves. If you have not, we can say this : few things are more annoying than reading a string of sound references. So how ’bout this : Wavves are exemplifying every pastiche of what anyone in their mid 20’s has been through musically and somehow, some that they have not. How a tune written by a 22 yr old can evoke this boyish reverie and reverence of thoughtful nostalgia is beyond me, but listen between the grooves and you’re gonna hear it too.
Wavves is the sound of today’s American youth! It’s a new day rising and as the Wavves rise, they gotta converge. You can choose to stay down in the curl, but if you follow the winner, we can meet up on the crest..
Wavvves is released on June 6th through Bella Union.
