Andrew W.K. on I Get Wet and I Get Wet

Phillip Crandall's book on Andrew W.K.'s I Get Wet for the 33 1/3 series combines several of my favorite things, yet somehow passed my expectations. Crandall reviews the album and its history lovingly and objectively, going deep into Andrew Wilkes-Krier's background, recording process and artistry, with revelations that will surprise and enlighten even Andrew's biggest fans (trust me). I'm happy to report that I Get Wet is one of the best books in the series, and worthy of its album. Enjoy this video the two made for Slate, and check out the party-worthy book here.
