Editors’ Notes

Nathan Williams is a SoCal kid with a sense of humor matching his talent: embedding a third “v” into his band name for album No. 2’s title, he also repeats a few song titles (just the titles) from his months-old debut, just to confuse us. Sheer pop exuberance, buried or not, drives the teen angst-filled “No Hope Kids,” and “So Bored” shares all the potential of the finest Pavement song, with a layer or two of added murk. The last half of  “Gun In the Sun” features solid garage band guitar riffs butting up against a distortion-encrusted wall of noise, while “Beach Demon” yields a great repeated, buzz saw guitar at the end. “Weed Demon” is almost pretty, shimmering in its nakedness: stripped of layers of grime, the glassy ooh-aah vocals and strummed guitars reveal Williams’ pure pop heart. You’ll want to pogo in the basement with “California Goths” and “To the Dregs” turned up to 10. And as if that weren’t enough, this iTunes version includes the self-titled single from the debut album, “Wavves,” which almost tops “No Hope Kids” and “So Bored” in the must-have department. It’s a tough call.

The Dirty Ocean

This record isn't for everybody. But this record is for me and you.

you get what you expect

wavves second album, wavvves, brings more of the lo-fi diy attitude as much as Nathan's previous LP and EPs. if you are a fan of bands like no age, abe vigoda, and ponytail you will find yourself drawn to this album. the sound is very rough, but it works great and is not hard to handle with no track over 3:30. warning: this album isnt pop, be aware of what wavves is all about or else you might be dissappointed. IMO its a solid record with great song structure and very pop oriented melodies, enjoyed greatly.


I'm a fan of obscure electronic soundscapes and a bunch of bizarre things that aren't for the faint of heart, but this isn' t just something that takes some getting used to. I don't see any particular artistic merit, and as a guy who's getting into music production for a living, this aural carnage made my ears bleed.


Formed: 2008 in San Diego, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

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 after...
