Condor Gruppe - Latituds del Cavall

I'm a little late on this one, the album was released September 27th, but it just hit Bandcamp today which is how I found out. Condor Gruppe released an excellent EP of otherworldly-though-kinda-groovy surf-tinged instrumentals last year, and this sounds like more of the same. Definitely on the out-there side but I love instro music because it's so different, not because it's the same. Click Read More for a stream

Os Brutus - Cidade Suja Desastrada EP

It's been a slow week for surf releases, but Sao Paolo's Os Brutus have given us a three-song EP to help us out. For those of you that don't speak Portugese (including me), Google Translate says the album title means "Dirty City Clumsy". Eh, I don't know. Love the take on the Dead Kennedy's album cover. Great heavy sound on "Nabila", looking forward to hearing more from them.

For nearly two years, Kenny Ahern has been pumping out covers of surf songs with the main melody on bagpipes and putting them on Youtube. The joke isn't lost on him, and like all of us endeavoring to do something stupid, he pushes the stupidity as far as he can, creating elaborate backgrounds and wearing outlandish costumes (usually half related to the song and half some form of scottish garb) while he otherwise plainly presents his craft.

Tiki Creeps - Invaders From Beyond The Sound Of Surf

From checking out their , it looks like the Tiki Creeps tend to play with a lot of burlesque groups. Despite that, this isn't exactly a Las Vegas Grind sound, but instead reminds me more of French groups like the Irradiates, Taikonauts, and Demon Vendetta - aggressive wtih a big overdriven guitar sound, and great production. It can get a little creepy too, though I guess that's implied by the name. There are a few slower tracks to round it out too.
