The Okay-Men - Auf Kassette

Last time we heard from the The Okay-Men I did some sleuthwork into figuring out just who these mystery men were. Looks like this isn't a one-off side project though, we've got a full LP and in the quick sample listen I did this morning I'd say it's the best Okay/Boo-Men material yet. It's faster, harder, but it's still got plenty of that pogo pseudo-polka beat.

Horse Rock - Men from E.N.C.O.R.E.

Surf is about riding surf boards, but some people like to ride horses. For this we have Horse Rock.

I could continue with horse-related jokes. Something about "galloping rhythms". Then I'd have to think really hard for more parallels. I'd suggest you check out their website instead, it's much funnier than whatever I would say.

The Raulis - The Raulis EP

The Raulis are my kind of band - half loud, rough, slightly psychedelic surf instro, half cool chicha. The two converge in their especially unique take on Pipeline. This is a really fun EP and I can't wait to hear more from them. Love the wild album art too!

skurkarna - in the web of villainy

You (may) have heard of "Crime Jazz" but have you heard any "Crime Rock"?

Skurkarna play rough and tumble instro tunes with clips from noir and crime movies interspersed throughout. Very seedy. For English speakers scratching their heads at the name, I've gathered from the internet that Skurkarna is the plural of Skurk, which is Swedish slang for a villain or scoundrel.
