Swami John Reis & the Blind Shake - Modern Surf Classics

For a lot of us I know this album answers a prayer we never considered having. John Reis of Hot Snakes, Rocket From the Crypt and all sorts of other groups have teamed up with The Blind Shake (lesser known but a great band, especially if you're a Hot Snakes fan) to make a surf album.

Hodaddys - Hot Rods n Surf

Hodaddys play some fun-in-the-sun trad surf with a bit of a hot rod touch to it. Gotta love all the Rat Fink styled art this band has courtesy of . Based on the samples at , this one's got some great production on it, sounds loud and big like it ought to.

Unfortunately I'll be missing Monday's show as I'm in New York City while my girlfriend shows off her singing talents with her Balkan music group Blato Zlato (translates to Swamp Gold). I'll have some good stuff ready for next week. A WTUL favorite DJ Pompeii is rising to the challenge. She's done it before and by golly I thought she did pretty well. While I definitely haven't a whole lot of free time up here in NYC, I swear I'm not sleeping on the job finding new surf releases, just seems like a slow week.
