Gasolines release Jungle Surfers

Gasolines - Jungle Surfers

The last Gasolines LP was in 2008, but they're still as genre-twisting as they were when they left off. Plenty of bands have had jungle-themed surf albums, but this one sticks to it closely, even if they do it in a broad and multi-faceted way. The title track is the pure Martin Denny sound the cover aludes to, but you'll also hear Peruvian chicha on "La Danza de los Mirlos" and "CatamarĂ£", reggae on "Rockers Rock", and interesting latin/South American percussion throughout. It's this sort of diverse world-surf stuff that makes a musical diet with tons of surf rock digestable. And don't get me wrong, there's plenty for the surf fan here with tracks like "La Surpiente".

This release was brought to my attention by  who helped release it. You can order a CD from or grab it on bandcamp.
