Gasolines

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.
