In surf music we don’t deduct points for being derivative so I’ll go ahead and confirm what you have already deduced from the album art: there’s a pretty heavy Man or Astro-Man? influence here But who among us thinks that the universe couldn’t use another Project Infinity? That’s basically what’s going on here: not so much the experimental, sciencey side of MOAM but the loud guitars and punk energy.

When I first made this website I felt like I had to actually have some content that would make visiting worthwhile other than just playlists. So I thought "why not share all the surf music I've been finding"? I could let people know about every single new release that I found and give them the gist of it. I didn't want them to be reviews, I didn't have the heart to get serious about when something kinda sucked, just descriptions... and if I really liked it I would try to be extra gushy with my prose.
We are gathered here as worshippers of the vibrations of the guitar string, but stand before you today telling you that good surf music can be made with the guitar firmly relegated to a supporting role. Many of you may be quick to cry heretic, but the elders know that the saxophone was once a very respected rock & roll instrument, including in the surf realm.
