Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 sat down with Wavves vocalist and guitarist Nathan Williams for an interview. The article focuses on how cheap DIY technology like Garage Band and the Internet allowed bands like Wavves, Best Coast and others to gain international attention:

I think that the Internet is such an easy tool to launch your band. That's probably why. It's more about the technology. Ithink that the advantages are the same as the challenges. Everything is at your fingertips basically, so if you have a bad show it's immediately uploaded to YouTube because someone was in the crowd filming it that night. Stories can get skewed and passed over the Internet so quickly. I think the advantages far outweigh that so it really doesn't matter.
