Thankfully not much similarity to the similarly named Lou Reed record, Knoxville's Phantom Operators have been drip-feeding single songs for a few months now and have scooped them all up into a 9-song LP. Some songs like Tiki Patrol and Charlie's Point are pretty trad, but it finds a darker place as it moves on. Definitely get a bit of an Insect Surfers/Derangers vibe.
EDIT! I'm rescheduling this. Stay tuned.
Storm Surge of Reverb makes its way to your earholes thanks to WTUL 91.5 fm in New Orleans Louisiana. 2 Years ago we put on a killer fundraiser show for WTUL featuring Kill, Baby... Kill! and the Unnaturals and it was a complete success, packing the bar to the gills and making a decent chunk of change for the station. You see, here in New Orleans there's not an awful lot of surf groups and definitely not much of a surf scene. But I have a lot of listeners! If I want to do a Storm Surge of Reverb special, they'll come out!
For a lot of us I know this album answers a prayer we never considered having. John Reis of Hot Snakes, Rocket From the Crypt and all sorts of other groups have teamed up with The Blind Shake (lesser known but a great band, especially if you're a Hot Snakes fan) to make a surf album.
