Reseña de álbum

Snotty and self-loathing as ever, even after catching a huge updraft of success, Wavves’ 2010 outing finds indie rock’s Edward Furlong, aka Nathan Williams, in an actual hi-fi studio. Teamed with Counting Crow/Modest Mouse producer Dennis Herring, who approached Williams after a show, King of the Beach finds the overnight blog sensation in a cleaned-up setting. With more recording toys at his disposal, he takes more risks, showing a new dimension to his stoned mind as he breaks away from muddy skate punk and tries his hand at some dense psychedelia. The sunny “Take on the World” takes a Beulah approach, and “Baseball Cards” finds Williams experimenting with chillwave, complete with weird Ween Quebec-era synths. Of course, Williams is at his best when he’s rocking to the beat of his punk heroes the Descendents or Adolescents, and with Jay Reatard’s former bandmates Billy Hayes and Stephen Pope by his side, “Super Soaker,” “Idiot,” and “Post Acid” are among Wavves’ thrashin’ best. In this glossy well-mixed setting, the songs are more penetrable than the ones on the 2009 homemade outings Wavves and Wavvves. “I’m so Bored,” despite being fantastic, was leveled out by so much tape distortion that it took a dedicated ear to cut through the muck and find the melody. King of the Beach is less abrasive, but it’s still a wildly messy pastiche. Wavves sometimes gets carried away —“Neon Balloon” and its sea of synth gurgles and helium vocals is near silly — but when Williams finds his stride and carves the tube of punky psych sonics, the results are totally awesome.

wavves truly reinvents his sound on this album. nathan tinkers with electronics and looping on tracks like mickey mouse. NO MORE FUZZ. never thought i would say it....but i kinda miss it. dont buy it on itunes...wait till it comes out on vinyl august 3rd. a little more angst on this album as opposed to the previous two...yet another thing i did not think wavves could accomplish. seriously though...dont download it online. go to a record store...a real one...and by a CD or a record. for old times sake. pauly shores king of the skweerrlsss

Refreshing to the ears

I've been following Wavves for a while and i can honestly say that their previous albums became a chore to listen to after 20+ plays. The fact that this was recorded in an actual studio instead of through the microphone on a macbook makes it so much more refreshing and enjoyable. Now with songs like "Idiot" and "Post Acid" i actually have a melody stuck in my head. Instead of just lo-fi noise. But don't get me wrong here because thats what made me fall in love with them in the first place. Overall i think it's their best material so far


Love the new album, I will be playing this and the new "COMMAND X" album all summer

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...
