Wonder Ballroom

[CROWD SURF] Already something of a couch-surf icon after accelerating from no-fi noise-rock home recordings to the crest of stoner chic—a lingering uncommitment to Best Coast guard Bethany Cosentino, programming a radio station on Grand Theft Auto V—Wavves head Nathan Williams navigated the ever-choppier indie-rock buzz breaks through a kicky mix of alt ’90s tropes (riffs, feedback, ebullient ennui) and a thoroughly modern preciousness (his celebrated ’09 onstage breakdown reportedly spurred by Valium, Xanax and an E overdose). If a bit too cute to be wholly uncultivated, fourth and latest release Afraid of Heights continues the successively cleaner production applied to Williams\' familiar yet distinct blending of old New Wave\'s ecstatic melodies and a more manful grunge. The tide is very, very high.
