2010 Albums: #50-WAVVES-King Of The Beach (Fat Possum)

After a year of breakdown and internal tensions, Nathan Williams recruited two of the late Jay Reatard’s band members to finish Wavves’ second album –third if you count the first cassette only offering. Much of the earlier lo-fi distortion gave way to a more energetic and straightforward punk/noise-pop sound and you can argue the record was a bit uneven, but its better parts were good enough as to justify its presence among our best of the year. The title tracks became one of our summer anthems of 2010.

19-WAVVES-Wavvves

wavves
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.
