Published May 11, 2015Wavves leader Nathan Williams is branching out with his side-project Sprit Club, and with that band's self-titled album out tomorrow (May 12) through Williams' Ghost Ramp label, it's available to stream in full.
Sprit Club also features Williams' brother Joel (with whom he makes up the beat-focused duo Sweet Valley) and Andrew Caddick (a.k.a. Jeans Wilder). Fans of Wavves will find a lot to enjoy here, since the record is full of summery pop hooks. But unlike Wavves' brash punk leanings, Spirit Club tend to favour cloudy-headed dreaminess with electronic and psychedelic tendencies.
Tunes like "Eye Dozer" and "Bless This Mess" are catchy pop-rock numbers, but most of these 10 tracks are more cerebral and experimental. Hear it all below. Vinyl copies of the album are already sold out, but it will be re-pressed.
Meanwhile, Williams has been tweeting about other projects. He revealed that he was recently in the studio with rapper Vince Staples, and he also promised that new Wavves records will arrive in June and August. And of course we're still waiting for that collaborative album with Cloud Nothings.
