Last weekend Wavves played some of the first shows with new drummer Zach Hill. The response they got was outstanding.



Wavves fall tour is off to a great start with raves rolling in for performances at LA's FYF Fest and a Labor Day show in San Francisco. These shows mark the first of over two dozen dates for low-fi wunderkind Nathan Williams and new drummer Zach Hill. Check out some great quotes below.

"Rarely does a band find more sonic fidelity at an outdoor festival... than on record, but songs from Williams' blood-curdling album "Wavves" came into unexpectedly enjoyable focus during his set."
- LA Times "Pop & Hiss Blog"

"Williams cracked a few jokes, and played a mix of songs both old, recent, and brand new, while [new drummer Zach Hill] worked his arms into a fury of rhythmic distortion equivalent to the heavy guitar fuzz that coats Wavves' ebullient, noisy bangers."
- LA Weekly

"[Wavves] all-too brief set fell somewhere between the noise noodling of Sonic Youth, the extended hollers of Creep-era Radiohead, and the distorted yollers of a little band called Nirvana. This was punk-rock turned on its head ... tinged with a healthy screen of art rock that elevated the music from the standard to the unforgettable."" - San Francisco Weekly blog
