Saddle Creek Records will release the self-titled debut album by UUVVWWZ (pronounced double-U, double-V, double-W, Z) today. With a name as eccentric and strange as their music, UUVVWWZ take the energy of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's, and the avant-experimentalism of Deerhoof and combine it with the accessible poppiness of both bands to create a stunning debut. The first track, "Berry Can" opens with little else but Teal Gardner's jazzy vocals before a shots of feedback-drenched jagged guitars break the mood like a bully at a birthday party.

The bouncy rhythm, big fuzzy bass line and quirky lyrics on "Shark Suit" shows off the bands' potential for a fun and energetic live show. The arty jazz-pop of "Jap Dad" is similar...
