Sweet Valley, the production duo comprising of Wavves' Nathan Williams and his brother Kynan, have released a new mixtape.

The 40-minute album, titled 'SV', is the duo's fourth release, following last year's video-game-sampling 'Eternal Champ', beat-heavy 'Stay Calm' and the psychedelic 'Jenova'. You can stream and/or download 'SV' below.

Wavves released their fourth LP on March 26. 'Afraid Of Heights' was recorded in Los Angeles, produced by John Hill (MIA, Santigold) and features guest vocals from Jenny Lewis, who sings on the album's title track.

Speaking to Spin at the time of the album's release, Stephen Pope of the band said he was starstruck by the former Rilo Kiley frontwoman. "I'm still a little starstruck when I see her, because I went through a Saddle Creek phase when I was 15," he said. "I was kinda into Rilo Kiley and obviously The Wizard is just amazing. She also brought us cookies. Weed cookies."

Song titles include 'Dog', 'I Can't Dream', 'Sail To The Sun', 'Paranoid' and 'Everything Is My Fault', 'Mystic' and 'That's On Me'.

Williams told Spin that 'That's On Me' refers to his relationship with Best Coast frontwoman Bethany Cosentino. He said: "I've always been fairly honest, but since people know me and the relationship I'm in, they could take out parts of a song like 'That's On Me' and know exactly what I'm talking about."
