Freckles is fronted by professional skateboarder Josh Harmony, who appears to take his music just as seriously as his skateboarding. I'm witholding a joke about shredding in two ways. Anyway, a nice trad sound and it's completely free on Noisetrade, though there's an option to leave a tip.
Joining the ranks of David Bowie and The Clash, you can now hear your favorite Rolling Stones songs surf-style. Of course, if your favorite Stones song is "Paint It Black" you've already had this luxury, but now you can hear a surf cover of the Rolling Stones' cover of Irma Thomas' cover of Kai Winding. Full tracklist follows...
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.
Would have posted this earlier but didn't realize it was officially out. Cutback definitely have roots in trad surf music but with a bit of a progressive edge to it. I get an Insect Surfers vibe. If I'm not mistaken, this is their first proper LP, though they've had some recorded demos.
They have samples of each track up on their website where you can order the CD via Deep Eddy. Digital copies should be hitting iTunes by November 7th.
Bandcamp groups are weird. Here we have a group with a name and cover art that suggest nothing spooky, playing subdued Halloween songs with "jive" in the title, plus vintage sound clips of horror films. I know nothing about this band, but I'm digging it all the same.
