Wavves leakage

The new Wavves album King of the beach has officially leaked (thanks momo) and I got my grubby little mitts all over that noise. As much trash as I was hoping to talk after hearing the early release of the track Post acid (no thank you) I got shot down, the album actually has quite a few high points. You definitely have to listen to it in it's entirety but yeah it's littered with style change ups through out. From the very drone-driven almost Animal Collective feel on the track
Mickey Mouse

to the overly poppy awesomeness of
Baby say goodbye

(good luck not whistling this tune all week) All around it's a pretty solid album

Tennis the menace

Doo wop is back and here to stay for a while. This new track "Marathon" by Denver Colorado band Tennis is an excellent example of a positive stride towards reinventing such a rad and missed era of music. Not to mention the chick, Alaina Moore, is bangin...... but she's married to band-mate, Patrick Riley. So hands off ears open dewds.

and just for fun here's some footage of their first live show earlier this month with a song called Bimi Bay. Pretty rad stuff
