Fat Possum Makes WAVVES

San Diego local Blogger gone bedroom twiddler, WAVVES, has signed to Fat Possum Records. Once known for diligently searching out aged, unheard southern bluesmen, Fat Possum have expanded their search for scrunchy field recordings to include youngins like WAVVES. Basically the bedroom noodlings of one Nathan Daniel William, Wavves falls into that area of closet rapper as naval gazer who even more secretly wishes to out-plunder Times New Viking with the psych-punk un-fi thing.

With a self-titled record already out on Woodsist, WAVVES' sophomore slice, WAVVVES, which was earlier announced as being released by De Stijl, will in fact be released by Fat Possum on March 17. Got that? But if WAVVES names their next album WAVVVVES, our patience will be tested.

Tour dates, including the ubiquitous SXSW soirees, will roll out on WAVVVES' tide.
