The antics of Wavves frontman Nathan Williams have occasionally overshadowed his band’s music, like earlier this year when he and his bro Joel (his other half in electro duo Sweet Valley) created a Whack-A-Mole–style video game called Kill the Alt-Reich, where players get points for punching Richard Spencer’s face. But make no mistake, what Williams does with Wavves is worth talking about—upbeat indie rock dosed generously with sun-lit surf-punk, head-bobbing post-punk, and jangly, melody-hugging noise pop. The new You’re Welcome is a fine studio effort, rawer than 2015’s V and filled with unexpected yet oddly appealing sonic accents and time signatures. The eponymous first single is full of kick-drum thumps, droney choruses, and ascending salt-stained oohhs, while “Million Enemies” spits guitar riffs and growls bass lines as Williams and company cheerily harmonize the refrain.
