Earlier this year, Green Label Sound released Neon Indian’s “Sleep Paralysist” with a lot of fanfare (and wallpaper). Wavves’s Nathan Williams recorded the next Green Label Sound release, “Post Acid,” in Oxford, Mississippi at Sweet Tea Recording. The release says he was “guided” by studio owner Dennis Herring, which is probably the right word. As Rogue Wave mentioned in their Progress Report, he’s a strong voice in the studio (he’s also recorded Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello, and the Walkmen at Sweet Tea). “Post Acid” is a totally bright, slightly snotty punk pop song. By “bright” I mean that it’s got less distortion and feedback than what we’ve heard so far from King Of The Beach. Makes it easier to hear the bridge, which starts as a wordless melody, and turns into a funny, throaty shout. Have a listen:
