I never understood the hype that Wavves generated with their last album. It sounded like fuzzy trash. I am pretty open to noise-oriented bands, but that was painful to my ears. I even smiled a bit when I heard Nathan Williams got his ass kicked by Jared Swilley from The Black Lips. As I was about to begin playing the album, I wasn’t particularly excited. I was expecting more of the same un-provoking, overrated, ‘chillwave.’
I was wrong.
