Wavves: 'Afraid of Heights'

From his days making shit-caked beach-gaze virtually by himself, Wavves’ Nathan Williams — who now records and tours with Jacob Cooper and Stephen Pope — has come a long way as a songwriter on his fourth LP. While some parts may seem overly-wrought and a tad too Green Day-indebted, Afraid of Heights ultimately has something for everyone, from meltdowns to devout nihilism, from beachy coos to submerged stoner doom-pop. My personal favorite, “Mystic,” definitely falls in the latter category.
