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 NATHAN 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. Received an 8.4 Best New Music Rating from Pitchfork.
