New Orleans is the location of Apache 65's new soundtrack of cinematic noir, Kingdom Of The Snake... The sequel to 2013's blood and sand epic "La Bella Donna Di Morti." Apache 65 combines spaghetti-western surf and Texas garage rock and roll. But on Kingdom Of The Snake, the band draws in influences like the imagery of New Orleans-based photographer Clarence John Laughlin, contemporary crime writers like James Ellroy and Jim Thompson, as well as the many various sights and sounds of the Basin City.

    THE AQUAMARINES
    OFF THE RADAR
     
    Mouseover for Description
    It's the long awaited full CD from San Francisco's Aquamarines! Guitarist & composer Lt. Col. (Ace) Russell Volckmann met Capt. Rick Escobar (aka El Reverbo Capitan of the Woodies) in late 2005, and together performed live in an all-star musical lineup with keyboardist/bassist MSgt. Farhan “Mr. Chicken” Mohamed, of famed Bollywood band VDaze. Together with veteran surf bassist Gunnery Sgt. “Big Wave” Dave Becker, the four mercenary marvels later set course on what would be a four-year operation to create a spectacular musical experience.

    The quest drew inspiration from legendary 20th century composers/artists of the 1930s to the 1980s … spanning such genres as rock, lounge, exotica, jazz, pop, surf, big band, swing, country, spaghetti western, classical, film scores, psychedelia, Middle Eastern, Latin, Hawaiian, and Japanese.

    The ‘marines enlisted a few great veteran musical conscripts from around the globe (sometimes begging, crying & screaming) to fulfill their noble mission for you… Enjoy the flight.

    Oh yeah, drummer extraordinaire Dusty Watson pounds the skins on this fabulous CD.

    BELAIRS
    THE ORIGINS OF SURF MUSIC
     
    Mouseover for Description
    The Belairs were one of the pre-eminent L.A. South Bay surf bands, scoring in 1961 with the classic Mr. Moto. Rhythm guitarist and Mr. Moto. composer Paul Johnson was joined in the originals Belairs lineup by lead guitarist Eddie Bertrand, drummer Richard Delvy and sax player Chaz Stuart. Jimmy Roberts also helped out on piano for recording sessions and live appearances. The Belairs carried on until 1964, when the British Invasion wiped out nearly all the surf bands.

    Originally released in 1993, the tracks have never sounded better thanks to Greg Russo's remastering and restoration. Paul Johnson has also updated his highly praised and insightful original album notes. Two tracks that were not on the original release are now included: the powerful Bedlam (a Paul Johnson composition he later recorded in a guest capacity with The Tornadoes) and Giggling Girl (the B-side of an unreleased R&B novelty record by The Initials with The Belairs as backing band).

    Slovenia's The Bitch Boys have gone into the vaults to pay homage to the roots of surf. While some of the songs are surf classics, and others obscuros, this is not a collection of covers by any means. Each is completely reinvented in the Bitch Boys style. These tracks display the magic of the Bitch Boys. Each song recalls the golden era of surf instrumentals, but its sound is immediate and current, while covering a range from dreamy to hard charging – It´s all good!
    Blue Wave Theory
    BLUE WAVE THEORY
    SUPERSTORM
     
    Mouseover for Description
    Inspiration often occurs in unexpected and seemingly disparate ways. For their second album, Blue Wave Theory draws influence from a wide variety of sources including Superstorm Sandy, Holstein cows, black & white TV, the theremin, Hawaiian volcanoes, a restaurant in Puerto Rico, woodchuck hunting, Rhode Island getaways, driving the highways of upstate New York, playing Frisbee at the Jersey Shore, The Endless Summer, and Saab automobiles. Named after 2012’s horrific east coast hurricane, Blue Wave Theory’s new release Superstorm coalesces these inspirations into the creation of a powerful aural landscape rooted in instrumental surf music and spiced with occasional echoes of reggae, rockabilly, fusion, and psychedelia. Close your eyes and enjoy the journey as Blue Wave Theory takes you on a musical road trip through America.
    Blue Wave Theory
    BLUE WAVE THEORY
    S/T
     
    Mouseover for Description
    Blue Wave Theory is surf rock dominated by musical impressions of sand, sun, and crashing waves, sneaking in the occasional odd time signature and using the cavernous roar of the mighty reverb tank. The album starts off in a decidedly retro-esque Dick Dale/Pulp Fiction vein with Gumby Goes Green and then immediately takes a left turn with the more progressive Huckster, featuring a lenthy drum solo workout and a surreal space jam. Other tracks, like the psychedelic Mermaid in Japan, venture into Mermen territory by way of Pink Floyd – you can almost get stoned just by listening, and you can almost hear the guitar pick disintegrating. The moody riff of Labyrinth is reminiscent of early King Crimson's more mathematical moments, adding the pomp and big chord dramma of progressive metal during the transitions. The album ends by returning to a more traditonal surf sound with Skyhawk Beach and the punk-inspired Road Hazard.

    "Magic Fingers may be the most vinyl-sounding CD yet. The Concussions' surf-guitar mastery gets enhanced by guitarist/vintage studio owner Dick Chiclet's "let's-make-this-sound-like-a-needle-on-a-groove-in-the-early-60s" vibe. It's impossible to pack more retro rock fun into a single instrumental CD, whether it's an original like "Stiletto" or a cover of The Beatles "And I Love Her." John Sinkevics, Grand Rapids Press

    Jeff Senn, Oscar Cary, Tom Hoey, and Kiwamu Stewart advance the Crazy Aces experience with Surfadelic Spy-a-Go-Go, a continuation and progression from their critically acclaimed 2012 debut Greatest Hits Volume 2.

    The title for the new record is derived from band's own description of the unique, instrumental sound. Drawing from styles and genres like surf, go-go, psychedelic, spy, and garage rock, the mission for the record was to better define the band's individual sound and record in a more simple, less Hi-Fi approach, in the spirit of the band's influeneces and mentors.

    Self-recorded, mixed, and produced at their rehearsal space in Nashville, TN, Surfadelic Spy-a-Go-Go takes the listener on a journey through the twang-imbued world of classic spy plots, fuzz-inflicted trips of psychedelia, the dreamy soundscaps of ´60s Abbey Road ballads, and the raw excitement of first wave surf. All of these sounds are blended together in a way that is not only unique but totally Crazy Aces.

    Crazy Aces is a funky, kitschy ensemble that plays an amalgam of hard driving surf, Japanese Eleki, spaghetti western, psychedelia, and noir instumentals. Vintage Guitar Magazine

    The Demands are back with a brilliant followup to 2005's excellent Play for You. The Demands new CD HIGH WIRE is sexy as hell. This three-piece sounds like a much bigger band -- Jahna Rain's sultry vocals have been compared to Chrissy Hynde and Etta James, John Pardo's guitar work owes as much to Creedence as it does to Television, and drummer Memphis Mike is a powerhouse that ties it all together with a tornado's speed and energy. Rain and Pardo's songwriting effectively fuses the swing and stomp of '60's soul with the angular edginess of '70's punk and the melodic impact of power pop and glam rock. HIGH WIRE also features lush backing vocals from Cynthia Santiglia (High School Sweethearts, Holmes), Paige Sixteen (High School Sweethearts) and Julia Rogers (Mister Badger, Curly Cues, and formerly of the Demands).

    FRANKIE & THE POOLBOYS
    S/T
     
    Mouseover for Description
    When San Francisco instrumental band Pollo Del Mar had to take a break from their recording and touring schedule last year, leader Ferenc Dobronyi had too much time on his hands and too many songs laying around. So he called up a few friends and they said "Yes" and Frankie & The Pool Boys was born. The original plan was to rearrange some of Pollo's more progressive songs into a trad surf style. But as guests were added, the sessions expanded to include mostly new songs and a couple cover tunes.

    Dusty Watson (Dick Dale, Agent Orange, Slacktone) played drums on the whole thing with PDM's Jeff Turner joining him in the rhythm section on bass. Ferenc played guitar along with featured cameos from Shigeo Naka (Japan's The Surf Coasters), Dave Wronski (Slacktone), Ivan Pongracic (The Madeira, The Space Cossacks), Mel Waldorf (Meshugga Beach Party, Los Mel-tones), and 2008 Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame inductee Bob Spaulding (The Ventures).

    The sound is strictly old world warm; no distortion boxes or digital reverbs were used. With Dusty pounding throughout (even on the slow songs), the big, natural drum sound mixes with the vintage guitar tones to recreate a live early Sixties session. Appropriate production touches (percussion, Vox Continental keys, trumpet), and varying tones give each song an individual personality.

    The styles range from reverb drippin' trad ("Teke, Teke, Teke", "Johnny Fool") to Spaghetti Western ("A Man Called Dirt", "Finito Bandito"). A couple of slow ones - "No Surf Today" and the bone chilling "Ice Station Echo" balance out the breakneck stomp of "Snakes and Ladders" and "Drop Dead". You get both spooky ("The Raven") and surf-pop ("Ewa on the Beach"). There's Middle Eastern ("Magyara") and Americana ("Amber Waves"). The oddball covers are a roaring surf version of Sir Edward Elgar's graduation processional "Pomp and Circumstance" (retitled here as "Pumpin' Surfing Stance") and a Memphis groovin' version of The Ventures' "Fugitive".

Vintage Fender guitars and amps, B-3 and Vox Continental, Beatle bass and Ludwig Black Beauty. Horns, strings, glockenspiel. Tank reverb, tube compression and U-41s.

    Basic tracks for the Cap´n Coconuts sessions were cut with the core group of Dusty Watson (The Sonics, Dick Dale, Agent Orange) on drums, Danny Snyder (The TomorrowMen) on rhythm guitar, Tony Bald (The Gregors) on bass and percussion, Karen Dobronyi (Meshugga Beach Party) on keyboards and Ferenc Dobronyi on lead guitar. But, the Pool Boys continue to have an open membership when it comes to recording. The guest list on these tracks is a mile long with musicians from bands such as The Surf Coasters, The Exotics, Tikiyaki Orchestra, The Deadbeats, Pollo Del Mar sitting in. Insect Surfer David Arnson works his signature mojo on “Rattler Ranch” and the man responsible for the surf revival, John Blair of Jon & The Nightriders trades leads on “Cat Fight”.

    Brilliant follow-up to their amazing New Wave Order, The Tsultry Tsounds of Go!Tsunami goes deeper into the wild and fantastical world of surf music.

    Shrouded in sinister mystery and cloaked in regaled debauchery, let’s sneak in on the Facebook page of Go!Tsunami and see what this band has to say for themselves. “Inspiring terrifying screams of euphoria, Go!Tsunami ascends from its subterranean machine shop to unleash a powerful dose of instrumental rock and surf on an unsuspecting, immediately willing and ultimately awestruck audience.” There they said it. You will neither see nor hear anything like this band in Springfield, and quite possibly in the known universe, other than the Chef Shangri-La in Chicagoland now and then. The fearsome foursome of Riptide, Stingray Jr., Stan Overboard and The Fury, also known as the “masked henchmen of horror,” don bizarre hockey masks and play strangely estranged surf-like music “that conjure images of hot rods, horror movies, long boards, tiki idols, beach parties, exotic islands, classic cars, pinups, cheap beer and rum.” – Tom Irwin, Illinois Times 6/20/2013

    What the hell is going on in Alabama? That state has produced some of the most interesting surf-instrumental reverb minds around. One of the finest examples is Kill, Baby…Kill, the five-fingers of death in music form. Their debut recording, the EP titled SOMETIMES THEY COME BACK, is five tracks of high voltage instro music.

In addition to the simple but effect deep surfy single-note guitar melodies present on Everything is Golden, you'll hear light prog embellishments such as Hammond organ, Mellotron strings, flute, and choir as well as unique time signatures and tempo changes. The new sound has been descirbed as progressive twang, and it fits.

    "The album does a great job with build-up as opener “Malaguena” eases us into the set, while “Machete!” takes us even more in-depth with even more energy. By the time “Rampage” came about I was cranking up the speakers and eagerly awaiting to see what the band was going to do next. In a calculated and well-executed move the band slows the tempo back down with “Wave of Kaui” before re-launching into the finale of “Zeta Reticuli” which may be the only song I’ve ever heard to where I could literally hear an army of zombies marching in my head." wearetheupstate.com

    “Spy Car Mechanic” is a relatively recent effort from Texas based hipsters “the Nematoads” and it’s a real winner. With a jet black muscle car on the CD cover, I was smiling before I popped this bad boy into my player. Its thundering intro entitled “Rex Dart: Eskimo Spy” had me imagining myself to be “Speed Racer” my whole way to work. The sound is a quirky fusion of sci-fi tinged cowpunk and traditional surfabilly. Sort of a Link Wray meets Dick Dale by way of the Cramps.

    The long-awaited second album by East Coast prog-surfers North Shore Troubadours does not slump! Original Motion Picture Soundtrack explodes with cinematic lunacy and burning twang. Fans of spy movies, pulp comics and space rock, take note.

    Instrumental surf rock that takes the twangy, reverb-y guitars and infectious rhythms of Dick Dale, The Ventures, Laika & The Cosmonauts and Los Straitjackets, and evolved a progressive and original sound all our own. Fuses surf with jazz, punk, metal, psychedelia, reggae, klezmer, and film & TV soundtracks to create songs that are equal parts rock & roll circus and schizophonic cinemascape.

    NEGRO SPIRITUALS
    Mouseover for Description
    From Norway. High energy rock & roll with a heavy dose of Johnny Thunders. Three vocals and one instro. Pirate Love is fortunately NOT another Norwegian rock'n'roll band tiredly aping Gluecifer, Hellacopters or Turbonegro (after all, they have Gluecifer's, Hellacopter's, and Turbonegro's records). On the contrary, they're in a dazzling heroic landscape somewhere between the peaks where the Sonics, Lime Spiders, and the Stooges occupy their thrones. This is rock'n'roll that cranks out the soundtrack to an inventory party completely out of control; with obligatory and obvious requisites like mountains of broken beer bottles, garage singles with whiskey stains, runny makeup on broken-hearted girls, yammering neighbors, weeping old ladies frenetically trying to destroy their hearing aids with their walkers, and where a crookedly smiling, smoke-puffing Johnny Thunders is a generous doorman.

    OUT OF PHASE
     
    Mouseover for Description
    Out of Phase is a wave-grinding new album from Portland, Oregon’s premier space-surf rock band. The Protons cover more musical ground than many other contemporary "surf" bands, effortlessly gliding through garage, western, prog, sci-fried and straight-up r&b styled tunes.

    “Following their 7-inch released last year, instrumental space-surf-garage band the Protons have a full-length at the ready, and Out of Phase is an atmospheric cruise on an interstellar wave. There are traditional surf numbers, complete with plenty of watery reverb and tremolo-bar guitar swoops; there are go-go monster mashes and space-cowboy dance parties; and there's even a wonky math-rock extendo-jam ("The Explanatory Gap"). With tunes bearing titles like "Attack of the Cybermen," "My Robot Is Drunk!" and "Be Prepared for a Fantastic Adventure into the Future," it's clear that the Protons' "sci-fried" take on surfy garage rock is out of this world.” - NED LANNAMANN, PORTLAND MERCURY

    THE EXPLANATORY GAP 7" EP
     
    Mouseover for Description
    A manic and high-throttled four-song EP, capturing the essence of rock, science, noise and space, all contained within a heady-bubble of instrumental pop sensibility. This is rock music for those that dare to surf the underside of the waves.

    “Surf rock in Portland takes on a slightly darker bent than if a band was from, say, Miami. Surprisingly, there's no shortage of it here—Guantanamo Baywatch is the most notable band to creep its way in with the hipster crowd. The Protons are working on it, too, and they might just get there with the release of their latest The Explanatory Gap EP. It's noisy and otherworldly while adhering to the blueprint laid out by the Surfaris back when your grandparents were hip. Basically, surf music might be better here than anywhere else in the world. There's just something about songs inspired by the beach that are actually written and performed in a dark, moldy basement. - Mark Lore, PORTLAND MERCURY

    THE UNDERGOUND
    Mouseover for Description
    Eleven years, nearly 500 shows in Europe and the USA plus countless miles on the highway lie behind the Surf punks THE RAZORBLADES, who started in 2002 to kick the Californian Surf sound into the new millennium. On their new album "Snapshots From The Underground" the three piece from Wiesbaden, Germany cold shoulders the beach and goes into unknown territory: “We don’t see too many palm trees, beach bunnies and white beaches, when we’re on the road. It’s more an endless line of sweaty backstage rooms, beer soaked stages and sleepless nights, before we hit the road again in the van to get to the next gig. You can hear that in our new songs along with all the bands we met and listened to in the last years,” says guitarist and songwriter Rob Razorblade.

    Out of the board shorts and into the black leatherjacket is the new mantra of the band. Dick Dale’s twangy guitar sounds are getting punked up by grooves reminiscent of Rancid, Agent Orange and the Turbo ACs. Put some noisy feedback on top and you get a darker, more dangerous version of the classic Razorblades sound. Sorry, no Hawaiian shirts allowed…

    To spice things up even more, the German surf rockers include singing in several songs. “We just teamed up with some friends we met on the road. That turned out to be a lot of fun” explains Rob. Among them are Hasu Langhardt (The Peacocks), Jancee Warnick (Jancee Pornick Casino) and Inez Venuz (My Favourite Mixtape), who sing along with Rob himself on three tracks.

    Reverb Galaxy is a Maryland based surf instrumental band that preserves the history of surf music, while exploring its future. Formed in 2004 by guitarists Art Svrjcek and Joe Atkins, the band’s focus has always been on delivering passionate, well-crafted songs with enduring melodies. Sometimes playful, then suddenly powerful and commanding, the music reflects the ocean’s ever-changing nature. Jim Colby on bass and Jeremy Carlson on drums forge the pounding rhythmic beats so essential to the true surf sound.

    Starting with the adrenaline-pumping “Invasion” right into the “Balkan Stomp”, Reverb Galaxy delivers the classic Dick Dale-esque tremolo picking and glissandos soaked with plenty of Fender reverb. Follow that with the beautifully arranged “10 Miles to Nags Head” and their tribute to the Shadows’ Hank Marvin, and you’ll hear how this band still honors the influences of the genre and its culture. All the classic surf styles are captured on this CD: spy, space, beach, and even a little country.

    Just like Duke Kahanamoku, George Freeth, and other wave pioneers, Reverb Galaxy’s mission is to embrace the soul of the ocean and spread its Aloha spirit to the world.

    Black Tie Spy is the third CD by Spy-Fi, Cleveland, Ohio´s spy-detective band. With the band’s first two releases, Music for Spies, Thighs & Private Eyes Volumes 1 and 2, Spy-Fi concentrated on interpreting classic spy and detective themes.

    This time Spy-Fi gathered a collection of original compositions interspersed with select cover tunes. Those covers include a wide variety of styles and influences, not necessarily from the spy-detective genre. They include the classics Perry Mason Theme, Rumble, Apache, and Wave.

    The album is organized around the diverse moods and moments one might encounter in a movie soundtrack. Finished thematic ideas are separated by short song sketches which then segue back into more produced and finished tracks. Some tracks also include spoken word segments in Russian, which lend to the air of mystery and intrigue that one may find in a spy saga.

    The album is named after its opening track; a collaboration between Spy-Fi and Vic Flick. Mr. Flick is best known for his contributions to the original James Bond Theme and 11 other James Bond soundtracks. Together they have penned Black Tie Spy. Spy-Fi is honored to have Vic involved with the CD and have Vic play guitar on the title track.

    When Cedar Rapids Surf Zombies make a record they really give you plenty of bang for your buck.Topping in a grand total of 19 high octane tunes [their last album Something Weird had 21]. Despite the name of the band they aren't really considered what some would call "Horror Surf." I would consider them more along the lines of being a "Power Surf" or just "Surf Rock." Either way they simply rock out. If you're looking for a instro album with plenty of variety of song styles this band should satisfy your appetite. Brandonio Granger, Rock is Dead R.I.P.

    TSE kinda fit into the progressive realm that fans of The Mermen will more than likely appreciate.

Another thing about these guys is that they are totally original and have no problem with drifting into psychedelic experimentation's all the while keeping most typical surf fans happy and excited...

    This is their wildest and most wayout CD yet. The Balls are carrying surf into bold new dimensions...

    Mike Vernon is GOD! OK, maybe not really, but he just keeps turning out incredibly good material. This release is chock full of splendid arranging and playing. His sidemen are extremely good as always. This is not classic surf sound, but there's surf along side Mike's signature guitar sounds. Note I said sounds. Mike is a long way from one dimensional, and the way he intermingles influences is nothing short of brilliant.

    Mouseover for Description
    Threesome is a new Serbian combo that delivers the sound of explosive surf punk that doesn’t care much about time or place. The three members of the band have been involved with the indie music scene for several years.

    What started as just listening to bands such as the Ventures, Dick Dale & The DelTones, Slacktone, and Man or Astroman?, and watching The Bambi Molesters performing live, ended up with forming a band that gives its vision of what surf rock should sound today.

    Adriatica is their debut full-length CD release, packed with 12 blistering surf rock instros, some with a slight punk/indie rock influence. There are 11 originals, plus a cover of Man Or Astroman’s Interstellar Hardrive. They beat out 400 bands in the Balkan region, receiving a recording contract and have since appeared at summer music festivals in front of huge crowds, and were recently featured on MTV. This is a band definitely on the rise, and this CD gives the rest of the world a chance to hear this band’s amazing, energetic surf rock sound.

The songs are powerful, melodic, and sure to stick in your head for years to come.

    What makes the The TomorrowMen stand apart from the majority of surf bands playing today is their priority on creating memorable melodies and presenting them in very inventive arrangements. When placed in the midst of a really strong rhythm section such as they have here, you end up with a recipe for some of the best surf music you’ll ever hear.

    "Fine production, tight playing and superb clarity of all instruments in the mix which makes it so easy to hear the highly melodic originals. Try “Surf Soiree” for a welcome splash of surf that you won’t have heard before and the gutsy “Feeding Frenzy”. There’s a bit of Dick Dale’s “Misirlou” on the rocking “Taken By The Sea” before a big guitar ballad “Silent Swell”. “Jellyfish Jam” is a bluesy, earthy rocker principally on one riff and we liked “Mother Nature” another racing rocker. Good set fellas!" **** Davy Peckett, New Gandy Dancer

    Welcome to Brave New Surf, a showcase for the amazing new sounds of surf music. Here is undeniable evidence that the surf genre is not only still alive but thriving. The past four years have been extraordinarily fruitful in both the number and the quality of new releases. The best of these new tracks – many compiled for you here – can stand toe to toe with the very best of the 1960s.

    The songs on this CD testify to a love affair between the musicians and their music. Surf musicians are not in this for the money – almost all have to keep their day jobs – but, rather, because of a deep passion for the music. For them, life is much more satisfying if some part of it is spent playing in a surf band. This passion is shared by an increasingly international community, reaching almost every corner of the world. The bands on this compilation come not only from North America, but also South America and Europe, these two continents emerging in the past decade as real hotbeds of surf music activity.

    Surf music has never been so vibrant, so diverse, so charged with energy and excitement. It’s time for the new surf classics. It’s time for BRAVE NEW SURF!
