WAVVES is an indie, surf rock band from San Diego California and Cloud Nothings is a noise rock, post-hardcore band from Cleveland, Ohio. No Life for Me is a WAVVES x Cloud Nothings collaboration that turns out to be more of a refreshing adventure than a loud, pretentious mess.

When I first heard about the two bands getting together to record an album I wasn’t all that excited. It would probably only be something die hard fans would appeal to and I didn’t really care much for either group. There are actually a few Cloud Nothing songs I do like, but it still wasn’t enough to get me thrilled about anything. I would describe No Life for Me as catchy, garage punk. It’s a record that showcases the strengths of both bands and I was really surprised with how well everything came together musically. It’s a pretty solid release from start to finish. Even if you're not much of a fan of either group, No Life for Me is a record worth checking out. Best tracks include “Come Down,” “Hard to Find,” “Nervous,” “No Life for Me,” “Such a Drag,” and “Nothing Hurts.”
