It's important for your band to have a memorable name, and I think MILS has that on lock. Another way they're a bit of an oddball: very prominent cowbell. I think it works though, and the rippin' guitars and tight playing certainly help. Definitely worth a listen and I'm looking forward to hearing an LP.Read more
Storm Surge of Reverb tries to stay on the bleeding edge of surf releases. Check out the release calendar to see a list of all surf releases that I'm aware of. I also write up release notices when I can, which is what you see below. Try not to think of them as reviews as much as descriptions.Take note though: just because it's listed here doesn't mean it'll make its way onto the show. Feel free to send me a copy if you want to make sure that happens!
Marshall and the Martins hail from Australia and were very recently known as Slowpoke Rodriguez. In fact, they very recently released an album called The Purple Thing only two months ago under that name. Two albums in less than three months --- clearly not slowpokes. A pretty nice trad surf album. On a quick listen my favorite is "Dammit Ferricks...Read more
A bit of a quandry with posting new releases. Album is released on October 7th, but you can preorder it or stream it on bandcamp now. Should I post it as a new release? I decided that Smash Brothers comes out on Game Boy 4 days prior, I may not be paying enough attention on the 7th, so here ya go.
Er... anyway on first listen this is a good one! Nice fuzzy sound with...Read more
Welp, Google is completely striking out on this one with nothing for "Blairracuda" or their label "Moon Rock Collective". The only evidence of this group existing as I can tell is their bandcamp page. But for a band that hardly exists outside their 3 song EP, they've got a pretty mean surf sound.
Admittedly I'm having a hell of a time finding out about these guys. I'm not even certain that this is a new release, but it only showed up on Bandcamp yesterday. Good trad surf from Valencia, Spain with a nice helping of reverb. Listen to a stream after the jump!Read more
If you don't think of Croatia as a surf hub, I think you're forgetting about the Bambi Molesters. Their countrymen The Pistolrays just put out their new album Corona Del Mar on their bandcamp page for free!

I haven't gotten a hold of any of BANG! MUSTANG!'s releases in the past but now might be the time for me to rectify that.
You can check out their song Surfin' NSA here:

I work pretty hard to stay on the bleeding edge of the surf/instro scene to keep my show fresh. But I can do more!
I don't really know of any site that's a really good resource to find out what instro records are just coming out. Since I'm trying to find that out anyway, I'll share what I find here.
But I'm definitely not the all-seeing eye of surf rock. I could use your help! I've set up an email,...Read more
