Wavves King Of The Beach on LP

King of the Beach, the new Wavves album is an adventurous and ambitious record. It cuts deeper into the bleeding throat catharsis and ’60s sunshine soul that Wavves is known for. It also unexpectedly flips out with elements of primitive electronics and psychedelic studio experimentation.

Unlike Wavves’ previously released material, recorded in haphazard bursts on Williams’ laptop, King of the Beach was toiled over for three months at Sweet Tea Recording, a world-renowned studio in Oxford, Mississippi. Sweet Tea is also the home of Dennis Herring, producer of the last two Modest Mouse albums, and the man who dismantled and re-assembled the sound on this record.

"Absent much of the sonic mud that caked his last album, the songs here are generally tighter and meaner, given added punch by new additions Stephen Pope (bass) and Billy Hayes (drums)—perhaps best known for their work as the late Jay Reatard's rambunctious rhythm section.  Just check the rumbling “Idiot,” a garage anthem that doubles as a non-apology, Williams singing, “I would say I'm sorry, but it wouldn't mean shit.”  No reason to beg forgiveness when the tunes connect like this."
--Andy Downing, TONE Audio, Issue 31
