[album] The WAEVE – The WAEVE

The WAEVE is a group of two longtime musicians, Blur guitarist Graham Coxon and Rose Elinor Dougall, co-founder of the indie pop band The Pipettes (both of them have also successful solo careers with multiple great albums). Last Friday they put out their eponymous debut LP, and it is terrific.

The pair presents a healthy mixture of genres on it, blending British folk music, progressive and krautrock elements with quiet intros, personal lyricism and powerful musical climaxes. Coxon also plays saxophone here more than guitars, which adds some extra flair, same as the combination of their vocals.
