Wavves: Lunge Forward

Notoriously noisy San Diego surf-rockers Wavves released their fourth LP, Afraid Of Heights, on March 26. The band’s reputation is a strange one, having built up a tremendous amount of online hype regarding their 2008 debut. This time around, the duo has eased up on their signature lo-fi sound in favor of something more pop conscious but no less raw. As part of a special release tour for Afraid Of Heights, Wavves will be playing in Brooklyn on April 11 at Glasslands Gallery and on April 12 at Shea Stadium.
