Wavves – “Cool Jumper” & “Mickey Mouse” & King Of The Beach Info

Last summer we heard Nathan Williams, aka Wavves, join forces with Zach Hill for “Cool Jumper” and clap hands on a demo for “Mickey Mouse.” A year later, one of those tracks appears on the forthcoming King Of The Beach, an album Bella Union just tagged as “the punk record that will define 2010.” That could be read in a couple of ways. Take another listen to the updated tunes after absorbing the album art and reading Williams’ thoughts on the record.

There was a conscious effort going into this that I didn’t want to make the same record again. I already made the same record twice, with the same fucking cover art … It wasn’t overbearing, but I didn’t want to recreate something I’d done. I wanted to make something bigger, something stronger…

…in case of future bar fights. Listen:
