Definition of Punk

I may be just a little too excited about Wavves but my mind tells me this band is the next generation as in relating to the teens or anybody in society that's ever felt left out or insecure or troubled. There music cuts straight to the bone, it's raw, and it reminds me of blink-182 as inspiring more people to learn an instrument and write songs. In the way that bands such as nirvana, old school green day, Weezer and blink did, they are combining unique distortion and sunny rhythms and raspy vocals ( I mean raspy in an awesome way like Kurt did) with catchy pop melodies. They're seeming to get better with age and after hearing and buying demon to lean on ( I can't stop playing it ) I expect this album to be their best yet. Check out Cloud Nothings if you dig this band.

Every now and again an album comes along that defines a generation. Afraid of Heights is that album. In a time when button pushers and knob turners are considered musicians the need for true musical artistry becomes oh so apparent and necessary. Wavves delivers a gift onto the world. They remind us that music is truly about instruments (guitars, drums, bass lines) and original lyrics. Their songs are urgent pleas to save the state of the music industry (and ultimately the souls of their fans). AoH dares to hock a loogie, a gob of spit in the face of mediocrity and complacency and everything American Idol, which just so happens to be crushing the soul of music to dust. This is an important record and one that should be enjoyed only by real music lovers.

Named for his fear of the ocean, Wavves, the skuzzy project of San Diego slacker Nathan Williams, is a blend of distorted no-fi and refined sunshiny melodies. Charmingly messy, most of his lyrics, while difficult to decipher, generally revolve around the subjects of weed, boredom, and the beach — when he isn't poking jabs at the gloomy subculture of goth rock (a common theme, found in "Goth Girls," "California Goths," "Summer Goths," "Surf Goths," and "Beach Goths"). Wavves was conceived just...
