The Huaraches release Steal Second

The Huaraches - Steal Second

Huaraches were nice to enough to send me a preview copy on this one so it's been played on the show and in my car for a few weeks now. Despite the fun, summery baseball album art, I get a pretty dark, ominous and dangerous vibe on this one. Perhaps it's not the music: I did first listen to it on the way back from a haunted house, the luchadore mask-wearing figure on the cover kinda freaks me out, and I've had a fear of getting hit in the face with a baseball since I watched it happen to a kid in summer camp a long time ago.

Surf's Up Spicoli release Terra Omega EP

Surf's Up Spicoli - Terra Omega

Loud, buzzy, spacey, and psychedelic is how Boston's Surf's Up Spicoli rolls on "Terra Omega". It's actually a little bit of a departure from the songs they've had floating around on their Soundcloud page, which are definitely a bit more straightforward surf. It's a free download, see what you think

Hella Vader releases The Frig​*​O​*​Riffic Fuzz Sounds of​.​.​.

Hella Vader -  The Frig​*​O​*​Riffic Fuzz Sounds of​.​.​.

Ideally I would have discovered this before Halloween but Hella Vader likes to date all their releases to 1964 in Bandcamp so it passed me by. But if you want to turn back the clock a week, this should be pretty excellent listening. Hella Vader is never really straightforward, but this is one long cut-up of previous songs and new ones and general guitar weirdness that definitely would have weirded the kids out when they knocked on the door.

Los Cuchillos release Isla Macabro! LP

Los Cuchillos - Isla Macabro!

Green Cookie's had this streaming for a while, but I believe today is the official release date! I absolutely love the art on this one by Shawn DIckinson who did The Hangee V/Angry Breed 7", some Boss Fink art and an upcoming Speedball JR 7". I've only given it about one good listen but it's tough, fuzzy at times, and all around pretty fun. Another fine addition to the Green Cookie roster!

The Sloptones release Demon-Haunted

The Sloptones - Demon Haunted

The Sloptones just snuck onto my radar recently with their EP Noir City but their 3-song EPs sound pretty promising so far. Each of the 3 songs on Demon Haunted are pretty great horror surf with all the ugly chords you want from that genre. They've upped their price on this one to a whole $1 to download.... and with free streaming on bandcamp when you click to read more.

Thee Imperial Royales release It's Dark

Thee Imperial Royales - It's Dark

Thee Imperial Royales have only released one Halloween EP, and they're back again with two Halloween songs. I can dig it. Their bandcamp page says "This is the latest communique from those inside The Black Lodge. It will start with one song, when we say it starts. When you've forgotten, another song may be added. Then another. Soon the story emerges"" Not sure if that means they'll be tacking a few songs onto this? As far as I know this is digital-only so it's a possibility. Give it a listen.
