Street Scene 2009 In Photos

Some 30,000 people over two days crammed into the six-block area in San Diego's East Village that hosted the 25th annual Street Scene this past weekend. That's a strong number, albeit down from last year when people weren't scrambling for money to put food on their families. Still, those who made it witnessed a righteou… More »

New Wavves – “Hula Hoop”

Last week you got a listen to "Cool Jumper," which served as the debut of Nathan Williams' collaboration with Zach Hill as well as his new, seemingly unpopular haircut. In a studio clip posted by Terror Eyes then reposted by Williams, we again see the new Hill-backed Wavves go for it, this time… More »

New Wavves – “Cool Jumper”

Folks are generally more interested in Wavves' broken bones and breakdowns than the guy's actual music. Which is a bit of a drag. It's not for a lack of sounds: Beyond Wavves and Wavvves and various singles, Nathan Williams posted the "Mickey Mouse" demo in July and now we have his best… More »

New Wavves Demo – “Mickey Mouse”

Nathan Williams is finally having some screws put in that broken wrist, which means Wavves' Smell gig on Thursday is off. He writes (with one hand) on his blog: "I'm bummed, I was really looking fwd to this show! Ironic I miss the skatepark benefit because I broke my wrist skateboarding. Anyways, I… More »

Wavves/Woods/Real Estate @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC 7/15/09

After the scene portrait painted by Woodsist and Captured Tracks on Independence weekend, a Bowery bill boasting Woods and Real Estate wouldn't register as a must-see despite those bands standing at the top of their class. But there was one Woodsister noticeably absent from that lineup, the same one who noticeably canceled aMore »

New Wavves Video – “No Hope Kids”

In February, before Nathan Williams' drug-fueled onstage breakdown, apology and canceled European tour, Pete Ohs shot this video of Wavves trekking around Europe, smoking pot (+ regular cigarettes), chugging vodka, rocking out next to some kid in a Velvet Underground shirt, eating tasty breakfast foods, and generally having a good time. Let it… More »

Wavves Cancels European Tour

On the heels of last week's drug-fueled onstage breakdown and subsequent apology, Nathan Williams will be taking a much-needed breather this month. Appearances at NYC's Bowery Ballroom 7/15 and Pitchfork Fest 7/18 are still on. Video of the Primavera debacle here. More »

Wavves’ Meltdown In Spain (And Apology)

Nathan Williams's beer-soaked non-performance at Barcelona's Primavera Sound Festival was more of a mess than Psychedelic Horseshit's anti-Wavves rant, if you can believe it. Pitchfork recounts the final minutes of the crappy late night set and directionless, off-key musicianship:… More »

Psychedelic Horseshit Hates On Wavves, No Age, TVOTR

Well, at least main Horseshittter Matt Whitehurst does. The following interview he did with the Washington Post is a few weeks old, but Brooklyn Vegan unearthed it today and we thought it was too amusing not to share, especially because, as mentioned, Wavves is such a polarizing figure. Whitehurst also goes on a… More »

SXSW 2009: Friday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy On Friday we shook off the early-morning cobwebs and made a beeline to the Pitchfork/Windish Bash in time to catch the last couple tracks by psychedelic post-Vanishing Voice Brooklynites Woods on the outside stage (as far as labels go, this was undeniably the year of the Woodsist) and SchoolMore »

SXSW 2009: Thursday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy Yesterday started off bright, early, and ecstatic with NJ's Roadside Graves at Peckerheads. The band seduced a 2PM crowd into hooting, hollering, do-sa-do-ing, and otherwise pretending it was after midnight to tracks both new ("Far And Wide," "My Father Sat Me Down," "Ruby") and old ("Family And Friends," "Radio").

Download Wavves’ Market Hotel Set

Wavves went from sorta outside to hardcore buzz faster than you can say Vivian Girls. If you couldn't get into the Market Hotel show on Friday (2/6), no worries: nyctaper was there, set up a direct line to the PA speakers, and has the results ready for download. Lock yourself in a… More »

New WAVVES – “Gun In The Sun”

When posting about WAVVES, aka the one-man project of 22-year-old San Diego-based Nathan Williams, in The Outsiders, I made the caveat that "he seems like he's ready to explode from the starter gate" via two new records -- one upcoming on De Stijl Fat Possum, one already out on Woodsist -- "and a groundswell… More »

No Age, Abe Vigoda, Mika Miko, Wavves & Friends @ The Smell, Los Angeles 1/25/09

On the eve of a trip to Australia, Dean and Randy from No Age threw a matinee house party at scene institution the Smell, inviting six bands and a sold-out crowd to come over for some blissed out punk and noise and pancakes. Figuring this lineup was too good to miss -- including Smell stalwart… More »

The Outsiders: Vol. 23

Not all of Stereogum's favorite sounds conform to what folks expect us to cover. In this space, resident Bananafish fetishist Brandon Stosuy focuses on bands, albums, singles, and villages in Sweden that may otherwise pass by unnoticed. This installment's virtual milk crate contains Wavves. In the past couple of Outsiders I've focused on underground… More »
