It’s hard to believe an entire five years have passed since the first songs surfaced from Wavves, originally the gritty bedroom-recorded noise-pop project of California’s Nathan Williams. In the years that followed, Williams has released a string of higher-fi more commercially-oriented guitar-pop records, the most recent of which is is Afraid Of Heights, the fourth Wavves studio album and one containing some of the band’s best songs to date. Check out “Demon To Lean On” or “Cop” for proof, and then bop around to their punky West Coast-inspired songcraft tonight at Brooklyn’s Glasslands Gallery with fellow Cali punx FIDLAR and London’s Cheatahs.
