From recording DIY hometapes to the first league of independence via deals with Fat Possum and Bella Union, Wavves released their second studio album playing with the number of v in its title, riding the new wave of fuzzed, lo-fi garage rock. “Wavvves” was crammed with some of the most contagious tracks of the year. The band from San Diego was later joined by two Jay Reatard members to complete their touring line-up. Too much attention too quickly may have led to the singer’s famous breakdown during Primavera festival in Barcelona.
Released on Bella Union. Available to listen in Spotify.
