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.
the palermo surf experience - shake 'n' fake (far from famous)
the bambi molesters - big time action (dumb loud hollow twang)
jon & the nightriders - surfin' and spyin' (live at the whiskey)
the surf zombies - it's a thing! (it's a... thing!)
tremolo beer gut - rave kned (under the covers with...)
I've been bristling with excitement over getting my hands on another Krontjong Devils release. They've got a great, distinct tone, great energy and songs, great choices of covers and a few originals like "The Rafter" that are practically modern surf classics. So today is the offical release date of their Action! 10" record on Kuriosa Records.
Is one zombie frightening? No, you need many zombies, hordes of them! Which is why I'm calling on you to help out with the annual Hollereen Show on October 27th! For the past few years I've had listeners call in to the FRIGHT LINE and record death threats, spooky noises, werewolf snarls, and occasionally cute kids.. You can still do that! The number to call is (504) 457-8126. But now there's the option to upload it here as well...
Personally, I choose robot. I love robots. Urban Surf Kings have been churning out releases like clockwork for over 15 years now, including side projects from Rev. Hank, but I believe this one has been in the works for a good while (their recording diary starts January 1st 2013). The format here is a little different: 4-song 7" vinyl that includes a download code for those 4 songs plus another 4. So 8 songs total, but only 4 on digital media.
