Speedball Jr release 7" with Stooges' saxophonist Steve Mackay

Speedball Jr 7"

Belgium's Speedball Jr play some of my favorite aggro-surf songs, so it's cool to see them join a member of everybody's favorite pre-punk group The Stooges to play some Stooges classics: "Loose" and "1970".

They've got a preview of Loose up on Youtube, and you can grab the real thing over at Drunkabilly

The Charades release All Around the World With...

The Charades - All Around the World With

Just as the tradition of surf rock continues today, so does the very similar tradition of Rautalanka continue in Finland. What especially impresses me is that despite how thin and glassy a lot of the 60's rautalanka can be, modern groups seem to all be very slick and prettty. Based on the samples I've heard, you can say the same here. There's a few preview tracks when you hit Read More.

Hella Vader releases The Frig​*​O​*​Riffic Fuzz Sounds of​.​.​.

Hella Vader -  The Frig​*​O​*​Riffic Fuzz Sounds of​.​.​.

Ideally I would have discovered this before Halloween but Hella Vader likes to date all their releases to 1964 in Bandcamp so it passed me by. But if you want to turn back the clock a week, this should be pretty excellent listening. Hella Vader is never really straightforward, but this is one long cut-up of previous songs and new ones and general guitar weirdness that definitely would have weirded the kids out when they knocked on the door.

Los Cuchillos release Isla Macabro! LP

Los Cuchillos - Isla Macabro!

Green Cookie's had this streaming for a while, but I believe today is the official release date! I absolutely love the art on this one by Shawn DIckinson who did The Hangee V/Angry Breed 7", some Boss Fink art and an upcoming Speedball JR 7". I've only given it about one good listen but it's tough, fuzzy at times, and all around pretty fun. Another fine addition to the Green Cookie roster!
