Most of what I post are announcements about new surf music. They're often mistaken for reviews, and often I may insert a little opinion, but they're only meant to let you know that it exists. But every once in a while I do  want you to know how I feel about a record. I don't necessarily think I'm good at it, but here goes anyway, thoughts on three records I've been listening to recently.

Sei Yamamoto - Wild Cat Stomp

Wild Cat Stomp is a nice little one-man production from one half of Momo-Sei, a lighthearted rock duo from Japan. I hadn't heard of them before but I got a kick out of this video...

Los Plantronics - Shortnin Bread

It's been a good while since Los Plantronics' excellent 2011 LP "Organic Voodoo Soup", so they've gotten the ball rolling again by releasing a new 7" called Shortnin Bread. The namesake of the 7" is the same Shortnin' Bread you've heard plenty of times (with vocals) but it also includes "Navajo" which is exactly the sort of big-production high-energy surf I love to hear from these guys.

There's a video for Shortnin Bread on the way, but perhaps more importantly they've promised an LP called "Surfin' Times" later this year!
