Hmm Pt. 3

Hmm, I don't know about this one. I was a big fan of Wavves' last album. He delivered punchy, catchy, noisy, and surprisingly heartfelt songs pretty consistently. The noise and the ennui really went well together. A lot of that, however, is gone with this new record. The terrific falsetto, the ambience, the pain, and a lot of the rather unique shitgaze sound is not present here. Also, it has a little bit of a pop punk vibe to it. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy this song as of yet, but I'm not sure how long that will last.

Compare to this from his last album. That solid, bassy jangle really gets to me:
