PREMIERE: Wavelets - Cannonball
Gainesville still has some legs kicking beneath it, people. Not only is the city gearing up for The Fest’s tenth-annual run in October, that month also marks the debut release from five-piece indie outfit Wavelets. While it shares members with fellow Florida scene-staple Dikembe, the band takes notes from the area’s gritty, DIY roots and turns the punk down a notch, creating a mellower take on shared themes. The raw vocals that carry "Cannonball" clear the way for a group send-off and tight instrumentals to close out track and album both. Pre-orders will be up for Athaletics later this month, out via Tiny Engines.
