Wavves

King of the Beach

I've been waiting for another full length since Wavvves came out early 2009. This album is definitely different, but it certainly grows on you. Check out the tracks "Supersoaker" and "Mickey Mouse" and I promise you won't be dissappointed. Look for these guys at this years FYF Fest in September.

Ty Segall & Mikal Cronin

Reverse Shark Attack

Ty Segall rules.  He and his band-mates are super friendly, they love KXLU, and they’ve never made a bad song.  Check out their Pink Floyd cover “Take Up the Stethoscope and Walk” on the b-side… great.

John Wiese

Circle Snare

Following 2007's epic Soft Punk, John Wiese returns with Circle Snare, an album realized over the course of his 2008 tour of Germany and Scandinavia. As one of the more powerful listens of 2009, KXLU recommends you add it to your permanent collection.
