We’ve seen Wavves a bunch of times since the world was introduced to Nathan Williams—in the dead of winter, in the dawn of spring, but never in the middle of a New York City summer. Not to knock his heavily-praised place of residence, but SoCal’s got nothing on us when it comes to June heat. It’s positively perfect weather for some Wavves action and a pretty good reason to put him on the cover of our Summer Music Issue (in addition to the actual music). The new album, King of the Beach, will be available on iTunes starting tomorrow, but you can hear that track and also an old favorite, “Wavves,” right here. Nathan dedicated the former to the original king of the beach, Pauly Shore. Stay tuned for more videos from our very special guest/Wavves’ hero, The-Dream.
