Track of the Moment- One by Sweet Valley

When it comes to surf rock, Nathan Williams of Wavves knows exactly what we want before we do. When the band was heralded as the next greatest thing in Lo-fi after the two albums Wavves and Wavvves were released within a year of each other, Williams zig-zagged our expectations and created the well recorded piece of surf pop that nobody knew they wanted. Enter Sweet Valley, Nathan’s new side project of producing electronic tracks with his brother. Sweet Valley released an album and now a mixtape, a tape that takes pretty well known tunes from video games and transforms them into dance numbers. Is the mix great? eh. Is the mix exactly what we have subconsciously wanted for years? Probably. Is the mix free? You bet your life it is. At its best Eternal Champ (the name of the mix) takes a recognizable tune and turns it into a dance number, at its worst it feels like it is trying to cash in on your childhood obsession of The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, but not really, because the mixtape is free. Nab it over at the bands Bandcamp, no consequences
