Wavves – “100%” (Sonic Youth Cover)

On his Twitter this afternoon, Wavves main man Nathan Williams posted an out-of-nowhere cover of Sonic Youth’s classic Dirty opener “100%,” claiming that he recorded his “quick acoustic” version of the track while getting stoned and watching The Price Is Right. I think he was playing fast and loose with the truth, though, because (1) it has a ton of effects-pedal sounds and doesn’t sound acoustic at all, and (2) I couldn’t hear Drew Carey yelling in the background. He probably was stoned, though. Download the track below.
