I really like Wavves; it’s loud and bouncy, and singing along doesn’t require much effort. The new one from the Life Sux EP which has guest spots for Best Coast and F*cked Up. Says frontman Nathan Williams, “If you hate yourself and other people, you might like our record.” Score!

Nathan Williams and his ever-rotating band members just released this video, the title track to 2010’s King Of The Beach. As always with these guys, lots of beach and lots of bud. This time they’ve got bling too.

San Diego’s Nathan Williams and what’s left of Jay Reatard’s band spend the day with a skateboarding, guitar jamming, girl-getting alien. Not a bad way to come down. From 2010’s King of the Beach, out on Fat Possum.
