Citizens of the Daydream Nation

crystalhillside

The new self titled release from Wavves is the most recent entry into the budding category of indie rock dubbed lo-fi garage rock/fuzz punk/noise pop/etc. Whatever you want to call it, these young bands (including Wavves, No Age, Times New Viking, Vivian Girls, etc.) have a lot of raw talent and ideas. Perhaps being brought up on grunge music myself in the 90’s gives me the ability to appreciate these new misfits. Whatever the reason, I’m into them and eagerly anticipating what they have stored for us in the future.

Sample and enjoy…
