Wavves + Makeshift

Wavves from San Diego makes bedroom trash-can fuzz-pop-rock, with one self-titled album out now on Woodsist that I need to track down and another forthcoming on De Stijl in 2009 (which is where this track is from). Been listening to a lot of stuff like Sic Alps and Ariel Pink lately (new A.P. track "Can't Hear My Eyes" is sweet btw, scroll down at that link) and this hits that kinda spot too ... also reminds of '90s slacker fuzz like Further's Grimes Golden EP.

Wavves - "So Bored"

For a bonus cut here's a cool edit of A Certain Ratio (incorporating parts of two difft. tracks) by Toronto's Makeshift:

Makeshift - "Luci Skip"


Viva No. 11

I'm wanting to take this site to a new phase (some kind of redesign or new format) but I haven't had time lately for much more than my weekly show on Viva Radio .... keep tuning in every Saturday at noon for a new episode.
