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 song in some time, “Cool Jumper.” When he upped this 6-minute blowout over at his blog, he tagged it with “BART SIMPSON, GARFIELD, NATHAN WILLIAMS, ROBERT WOLFE, STUSSY, WEED, ZACH HILL.” It’s likely Hill handling the drums and he included a drawing of a clearly stoned Garfield. On top of the fat cat’s bloodshot eyes, his wristwatch reads 4:20 and he’s sporting a Bart Simpson tattoo. And maybe Williams was wearing a Stussy jumper when he wrote the thing. Ponder the rest of the tags while you take a listen.
