[mp3] Wavves - "So Bored"

Wavves is the recording alias of a 22 year old California kid named Nathan Williams. Their (his) self-titled (sort of) upcoming release is generating a moderate amount of blog-buzz, which, judging from how good “So Bored” is, is not enough. If you‘ve been digging the surge of super lo-fi, melodic fuzz-punk that‘s so awesome right now (Times New Viking, Women, No Age, etc.) then this track is going to blow your mind. If not then you'll probably just think it blows, because to call it "rough around the edges" is putting it mildly. Give it a good listen though and you'll hear the charming pop song underneath the noise.

I’m not 100% sure about release information - Wavves already has an album available from De Stijl, and it looks as though the new one, Wavvves, will be issued by Fat Possum in early 2009. I’m very likely wrong about that - and there doesn’t seem to be any concrete evidence anywhere of exactly what is happening. Anyway, Wavvves will be available in the very near future, if not already.
