Life Sux [Import]
WAVVES have come a long way from San Diego, where the buzz-building self-titled and semi-self-titled LPs. Paved the way to Wavves subsequent full length 'King of the Beach' which was recorded with producer Dennis Herring (ANIMAL COLLECTIVE, MODEST MOUSE). Produced by the band and recorded at Infrasonic Sound in nearby Alhambra, 'Life Sux' picks up where the last album left off: At that rare intersection where form meets friction. The blisteringly bright "I Wanna Be Dave Grohl" offers an arena-sized appeal to everyman excellence, while "Nodding Off" finds that escape fantasy failing even as Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino coos sweetly over the encroaching grime. "Destroy" is severe, with F***ed Up and Wavves teaming up to thrash in vain against a crushing apathy.
