As you might have picked up from my column last week
, I think Wavves
is one of the most interesting bands out at the moment. So I was pretty excited to read
they've got a new song out, even if:
b) The song in question is called "Mickey Mouse," which means it'll likely never make it on to a record, unless the name changes or Fat Possum's legal department gets bored enough to tangle with Disney. Hey, I saw the Girl Talk movie Rip!
c) The new song does sound, as Pitchfork says, a little like Animal Collective. It's still lo-fi, somehow, and it's still Williams singing. Pretty odd.
