As put off as I was by all the hoopla surrounding Wavves’ debut, it was Nathan Williams’ subsequent “meltdown” that really made me wish the whole thing would just go away. So, I was shocked to like the band’s first single off its Fat Possum debut, King of the Beach, as much as I do. “Post-Acid” is a great pop song couched in stridently accented chords and herky-jerky rhythms. Willliams’ voice still rides a sunny slacker wave, but he injects enough Kurt Cobain in the breakdown to pique my interest. Great chorus, too.
