Wavves' Nathan Williams became the poster boy for blog culture's too-much-too-soon hangover last year when woozy, lo-fi sophomore effort "Wavvves" rocketed him from bedroom maestro to festival-circuit rock star in a matter of months.

Wavves' Nathan Williams became the poster boy for blog culture's too-much-too-soon hangover last year when woozy, lo-fi sophomore effort "Wavvves" rocketed him from bedroom maestro to festival-circuit rock star in a matter of months.

His drug- and booze-fueled onstage meltdown in Barcelona became the stuff of legend, and he quickly discovered backlash is a bitch.

The bratty surf-punk songwriter must have had his notoriety on the mind while penning lyrics for follow-up "King of the Beach." Consider "Green Eyes:" "My own friends hate my guts/ So what? Who gives a f---?"

Then there's "Take on the World": "I still hate my music/ It's all the same/ I hate myself man/ But who's to blame?" And on "Idiot," he laments: "I'm not supposed to be a kid/ But I'm an idiot/ I'd say I'm sorry/ But it wouldn't be s---."

Williams' reactions are petty and juvenile, but they're also heartfelt, and they make for some incredible slacker punk. "King of the Beach" is one of the year's most unlikely triumphs - a "Dookie" for the Facebook generation. The album complements its bang-pop anthems with occasional tangents into pastoral "Pet Sounds"/Animal Collective euphoria, all in stunning hi-fi.

Christmas Island and upstart Columbus quintet Feature Films will open Wednesday's show at Skully's. Unfortunately, locals Psychedelic Horseshit, who made a cottage industry out of trashing Wavves last year, will not perform
