On the turntable this Sunday...V
V is the fifth studio album by the American rock band Wavves. The album was released on October 2, 2015 through Ghost Ramp and Warner Bros. Records.
Jon Caramanica of The New York Times called it "a peppy album about the tragic pleasures of wallowing in poor choices. [...] The balance of good cheer and dark clouds is partly in the arrangements — V comprises exceedingly bright songs verging on true pop-punk. It’s probably the cleanest-sounding Wavves album to date."Consequence of Sound's Collin Brennan felt the album "visceral and downright volatile [...] a self-assured record penned by a songwriter who’s anything but sure of himself, and that dynamic shines right through the curtain of fuzz." The 405's William Tomer commented that "one who chooses to listen to the album in full--an exceedingly easy task to do repeatedly given the immediate appeal of the record--will be treated to one of the most down-to-earth takes on what it is like to be actively battling your demons, internal or otherwise." Jon Dolan of Rolling Stone felt "their songs have never been sharper, brighter or more confident."
