Head over to Kynaan of Sweet Valley’s Soundcloud page to download SV, a new free release he crafted with bro Nathan (who you might know from a lil rock-n-roll combo called Wavves). SV delves even further into the baked beat madness the duo began crafting on Stay Calm, Eternal Champ and Jenova. Recommended!

The brothers of Sweet Valley fall even deeper down the beat rabbit hole on Jenova, their follow-up to Stay Calm and Eternal Champ. The duo’s beautifully dusted music takes a darker direction on Jenova, but their knack for untamed, unexpected textures (guitar feedback, girl group harmonies, trap hi-hats, Rambo noises) and ADD spirit keep the Sweet Valley vibes as lively as ever. Trip out to this…

Spin and Pitchfork spilled the beans on the newest addition to the Fool’s Gold fam, Sweet Valley, aka Nathan Williams (frontman of critically beloved, fan favorite fuzz punks Wavves) and his brother Kynan.
Stay Calm is their debut release (out 8/7), an instrumental beat tape that doubles as an awesomely lysergic postcard from the outer reaches of pop USA. Whether screwing American Bandstand breaks on “Total Carnage” or whipping out g-funk synthesizers on “Dunk Dreams 95,” the brothers Williams have managed to craft the perfect black hole summer soundtrack. Grab the sunscreen, nod your head, and mind the sharks…
