San Diego punk-rockers Wavves released their album King Of The Beach to critical acclaim earlier this summer. Now they’ve added a video for the song “Post Acid” which can be found on that album as well as on a singles release by Green Label Sound (the record label funded by Mountain Dew). The video was shot in the Echo Park area of Los Angeles and directed by DIY photographer/filmmaker Patrick O’Dell, who has also done vids for Panda Bear and Morrissey. The “Post Acid” video features John Norris of MTV fame, skateboarding aliens and epic partying.
When asked about the concept for the video in an interview, Wavves’ Nathan Williams said “I’m glad I finally got to fulfill my dream of ripping off the premise of the movie Encino Man… except we replaced the caveman with a skateboarding alien!”
Wavves recently announced a string of dates supporting Phoenix, including an October 20th show at Madison Square Garden in NYC. You can catch them (sans Phoenix) in DC on September 27th at Rock And Roll Hotel.
