wavves

i'm a sucker for anything beach boys-influenced. wavves is lo-fi surf rock; timeless melodies sung through a tin can.

i think his releases have been pretty limited, but you can find the s/t on the web and stuff.

anyway, here's his myspace

http://www.myspace.com/wavves

This guy has fucking exploded. He had barely 1000 plays on Last.fm in September, and has since ballooned to 300,000 within a few months.

i don't get it. i think he falls in with that group of things, like No Age, that i think i am supposed to like from the descriptions of the music, but i just don't like.

Love it. Great stuff. I have definitely been getting back into some noisier stuff, and I'm loving it.

Anyone remember Comets on Fire? I've been busting them out every now and then too.

Flow of the album is ****ing brilliant, gets a little too noise-ish at times but it's still a quality record, one of the best of '09 so far

Holy sheeyot.

This guy is amazing. This is pretty much the epitome of the music I like. Lo-fi, catchy, noisy, and louuud.

Worked it out...

I can't afford both, so which is better? I'll pick up the other later. :/

I kind of like Wavvves better than the self-titled. I dunno, it's probably just because I'm more familiar with it.

Anyway. This guy is tied with No Age for third place in my top five right now. I think No Age might be beat soon.
