Wavves is an odd duo(mostly Nathan Williams), that's been labeled hipster garbage by many and praised as revolutionary by others. I, as most of the time, am pretty much in between as they sound good but aren't amazing. They are so weird that they have two albums called Wavves and Wavvves, this review being their 2009 album to prevent confusion. They are quite noisy and kind of have a lo-fi feel but since they really don't use lo-fi recording and just pedals they are pretty much just noise pop. They are influenced by surf rock and have a fun noisy feel that you will probably enjoy. Their hit song is called "I'm So Bored" and that's pretty much the extent of the lyrics. Don't expect much lyrically, just relax and enjoy the music.
