Unfortunately I'll be missing Monday's show as I'm in New York City while my girlfriend shows off her singing talents with her Balkan music group Blato Zlato (translates to Swamp Gold). I'll have some good stuff ready for next week. A WTUL favorite DJ Pompeii is rising to the challenge. She's done it before and by golly I thought she did pretty well. While I definitely haven't a whole lot of free time up here in NYC, I swear I'm not sleeping on the job finding new surf releases, just seems like a slow week.
el ray - those damn kids (the evil mermaid)
barbacoa - gorilla monsoon (italian medallion)
watang! - miss wong (miss wong)
durango14 - villapaquita (vol. 2)
krontjong devils - mustang (action!)
the abominable showmen - 26 alpha 20 (the abominable showmen)
captain ahab & the sea cracken - surf home plotzed (jürmungandr)
hikury beach - pennywise (soy el diablo)
the grande bois - killer hornet (meltdown)
the tiki creeps - green slime are coming (invaders from beyond the sound barrier)
Here we go, 2015! The Sub-Vectors gave me a preview of a few tracks off their new album back in December and I found them mighty tasty. It's big (huge even), loud, of the MOAM school of guitar tone, and really packs a punch. The name (and art) of the CD comes from how Soviet music bootleggers would sometimes press records onto X-Rays.
I did not see this coming! The Treble Spankers' long-out-of-print and hard-to-find albums Araban and Hasheeda have been collected onto a double album AND Hasheeda has been reissued on (pricey) vinyl. If you're unfamiliar, this is pre-Phantom Four Phantom Frank with similar middle eastern influence and flair.
Here's one from a continent you don't see too often in instro: The Moths hail from South Africa and their sound reflects the look of the album cover here pretty well. It's raw, ragged, and punk-styled. This three-song live EP and their LP from last year are free to download
