Music Monday - Wavves!

Californian surf rockers Wavves make a welcome return this at the end of this month with their fourth album 'Afraid of Heights'.

Wavves was started in 2008 as a recording project by Nathan Williams, who later went on to enlist the drumming capabilities of Ryan Ulsh as US and European tours beckoned due to the success of their self-titled debut album.

The band released their second album 'Wavvves' in 2009, again to much critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and Spin. That same year, the band underwent some major changes, with Ryan Ulsh leaving the band after a very public fallout with Nathan Williams, during their set at Barcelona's Primavera Sound Festival.

The lineup has changed a few times since then, with the inclusion of Zach Hill as a touring drummer for a brief time before the former members of Jay Reatard's band Billy Hayes and Stephen Pope jumped on board and together they recorded Wavves third album 'King Of The Beach' in 2010.

The current lineup consists of only Nathan Williams and Stephen Pope but the new and fourth album from the Wavves is sounding great, you can stream it below, we've been listening to it in the shop all morning, nothing beats a good bit of surf rock to take you away from the dreary Glasgow weather!
