Sweet Valley is Nathan Williams (frontman of Wavves) and his brother Kynan. Released in August 2012, their nine-song debut Stay Calm (on the Fools Gold label) is an instrumental beat tape that doubles as an awesomely lysergic postcard from the outer reaches of pop USA. Its first single “Total Carnage” debuted on the Spin website.
