Biography

Straight from the dungeons of L.A., Wavves are releasing Afraid Of Heights, their fourth album and first on the Mom + Pop and Warner Bros. labels. Now a duo consisting of guitarist Nathan Williams and bassist Stephen Pope, they sound bigger, brasher, and shockingly more professional than ever on Afraid Of Heights which positions the band to take their rightful place amongst the pop-punk gods. ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool runnings 27 Feb 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
The product arrived on time (however it was annoying how long p&p was)
The vinyl was of course in good condition (new) but as is with vinyls there are some repeats

Otherwise would recommend

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff 6 Jan 2014

This album seems to have been missed in 2013 which is a shame as it's really really good. Pop hooks welded onto punk/rock/indie. The lyrics aren't up to much but the whole thing is severely catchy. Think Nirvana/Pixies/Undertone type of deal. Yes!

5.0 out of 5 stars great album 26 Mar 2013
By kbarth17 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
So it's a bit self loathing. It's really bummer to play in a well known band and travel around the world playing for adoring fans (i get depressed just thinking about it). Wavves hit their stride on Afraid of Heights, combining Blue album Weezer with a Nirvana grunge sound that often uses the Pixies loud quiet loud quiet theme, this album is a pop record. It's got hooks that you can almost sing along with in fact you probably will, from the opener Sail to the Sun all the way to the end, the songs are catchy and implement fuzzy guitars and paranoid lyrics throughout, sure the theme gets a bit repetitive, but the songs are great and this is a cohesive album. I like the experimentation with new instruments like a cello on as it goes "Now I want to be your dog...." It's not the first thing you think of when you think Wavves, but instead of a sunny day at the beach this album is more like a Category 5 hurricane. I've had it on repeat since it has been on NPR. My favorite album this year and by the Wavves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wavves Swing For The Fences 28 Mar 2013
By Melbatunes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The immediate buzz of first listening to this caused me to hold back from reviewing so I could let everything soak in. After repeated listening and tequila over the past few days I must say this is as good, if not better than I initially thought. I'm an old fart and can remember the impact of first hearing Husker Du and Pixies "Surfer Rosa". Of course for me nothing will be that good again but these guys channel all of that energy and more via early Weezer, Nirvana, Sebadoh and some Brian Wilson sunshine. I love the earlier Wavves power pop lo-fi psych noise, but this is sort of a revelation...primitive BIG production sometimes ROCKS and the hooks are completely devastating my free world. A true damaged rock and roll classic for the summer of 2013. WELL DONE WAVVES and keep on ROCKING!!!!

Paper Casing slightly bent but it was a used copy so no real complaints. CD plays perfect so I would recommend.

Before I bought Afraid of Heights I was a fan of Wavves and after this album I'm in LOVE with Wavves! It's the best album I've heard this year! I'm constantly listening to it on repeat everywhere I go 10/10!
