Afraid of Heights – Wavves (Mom + Pop)

Mr. Nathan Williams has done it again. Wavves managed to create an increasingly clean, accessible sound while still proving to all of us that he does not give a shite. If you are used to Wavves’ poppy surf punk this album should not offer too many surprises, but some songs trade in their fuzz for good acoustic vibes (“Dog”) and it still works. You could even describe some of these tunes (“Everything Is My Fault”) as ambitious, which seems kind of rare for Wavves. Some highlights include single “Demon To Lean On” and “Paranoid.” All of it is pretty decent though.
