I first mentioned Wavves (Nathan Williams) back in October of last year. The one-man San Diego noise pop band has since gone on to sign with the illustrious Fat Possum Records, becoming a hit among taste-making music bloggers for his fuzzy, super lo-fi beach punk anthems.

His Times New Viking brand of production started catching on last year with a self-titled record released on the experimental indie rock-embracing label Woodsist, and his sophomore effort WAVVVES will likely make an even bigger splash when it is released by Fat Possum on March 17. This will fall shortly after his tour of the UK and right in the middle of his appearance at SXSW.
