Coffin Haze - Rehearsal Ritual 1

Coffin Haze refer to themselves as blackabilly deathsurf. I like it. This one's kind muddy recording-wise, I'm guessing it was live, but it's indeed dark, fast and very well played. For now it's streaming and purchaseable on bandcamp, and there's a cassette version on the way. That's about everything I can find on these guys based on their facebook page.

Krektones - Megaladon

North Carolina's Krektones have a new 7" with 4 swaggering, saucy intrumentals full of danger. A lotta trumpet in here, which you don't see all that often, backed up by some raw and ragged guitar. You can preview it and purchase it on bandcamp

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.

The A-Phonics - With Friends

Oh man, this one flew under my radar, looks like it was released in late October, but I want it! Els A-Phonics have released some really upbeat, creative (and well produced) surf and they've teamed up with some of the best: Mike Barbwire, Nokie Edwards, Deke Dickerson, Jon Blair and others.

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
