For anyone thinking of hanging themselves with a row of lights after hearing an endless loop of Madonna’s “Santa Baby” or Gloria Estefan’s “Love On Layaway”, Wavves frontman Nathan Williams is decking the halls with a new beat tape from his production project Sweet Valley. Williams’ “most blunted, smoked out” effort to date, Jenova is steeped in psychedelia, with plenty of hazy effects, snarling guitars, and jumbled samples and random dissonance. Stream the 17-track effort below, or download your copy here.
Jenova is the project’s third tape, following Stay Calm and the video game-sampling Eternal Champ. Williams will also release a new Wavves album this spring, and you can watch the video for lead single “Sail to the Sun” here.
