Surf Pirates

Surf music has been infiltrated by artificial intelligence, and it's probably going to get worse.

I have a compulsion to check for new surf music on bandcamp using their tag system. It's how I find a lion's share of what I play and review on my show and website, and I monitor it closely enough that I sometimes have bands send me promo codes only to find that I've already bought their music before they got the chance.

In April I found a record by God of Surf. It's a presumptuous name, but I have to admit the music did feel ambitious and interesting.
