WAVVES

Some bands are so good they deserve their own genre and DOO-WAVE is the term exactly one person (hi!) is using to describe the exhilarating doo-wop surf-punk made by San Diego’s Wavves.

Wavves is the work of Nathan Williams, who writes the classic rap blog Ghost Ramp and makes tapes of awesome songs he says are inspired by “the sun. And feeling like shit.” His explosive new single Beach Demon assaults the monotony of endless suburban sunshine with zigzagging harmonies and a blitzkrieg of fuzzed-out noise.

“Beach Demon is about getting drunk on the beach and not having or feeling any real purpose in your life,” explains Nathan. “That’s why the chorus is ‘going nowhere, I’m going nowhere’, this overwhelming feeling of unimportance in the real scheme of things, ya know?” And Weed Demon, the languid, freewheeling b-side, what’s that about? “Weed Demon is about weed.” Ah. Of course.
