Is it too much of a pun to say we're getting bored of "So Bored"? To be fair to Nathan Williams -- aka Wavves -- he wrote it and it is one hell of a catchy tune, but we heard it a lot at SxSW, only to find out at subsequent non-Wavves shows that the Vivian Girls were also covering and playing it live. But then we heard our 8-bit heroes Anamanaguchi's version of it, taking it out of the garage rock murk and giving it new life. Now we're pumped on it again.
Before listening to the song below, we strongly suggest checking out our profile on Anamanaguchi for a few original tracks and you can watch Wavves playing "So Bored" live in Austin, TX here.
