listen to Wavves’ new album ‘V’ in full
by Andrew Sacher
Wavves had already revealed almost half of their new album V, but now they’ve given us the whole thing ahead of its October 2 release date (via Warner Bros). As the singles hinted, it’s the most highly produced thing they’ve done — if you prefer lo-fi Wavves, check out their collaborative album with Cloud Nothings or their side project Spirit Club’s album from earlier this year — but it’s otherwise the kind of sugary pop punk/alt-rock they’ve been making since King of the Beach. It’s also their shortest full length since their debut. No psych-pop explorations this time around, just rockers. Listen to the whole thing below, via NPR.
