Wavves - "Hippies Is Punks"

Sag your pants and slack your jaw; we're going back to the 90s.

While the majority of Nathan Williams' (of Wavves) back catalog sounds like it was recorded at the bottom of the ocean, mixed up in a blender with weed and pharmaceuticals, and spat out through the mouth of a zoned-out, bratty teen, his new track "Hippies Is Punks" evokes the sound of the slacker-pants 90s.

It's not clear whether Williams had a tripped-out encounter with Billie Joe Armstrong, but all evidence would suggest that he's channeling the _Dookie_-era spirit of the Green Day frontman by way of melodic, angst driven choruses, mixed in with colored-album-era Weezer (blue and green only).

The track is part of the Adult Swim Singles series and can be downloaded for free here.
