The Sloptones release Demon-Haunted

The Sloptones - Demon Haunted

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.

Cutback releases Surfers' Journey

Cutback - Surfers' Journey

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  where you can order the CD via Deep Eddy. Digital copies should be hitting iTunes by November 7th.

Krontjong Devils release Action! 10"

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.

Urban Surf Kings release Penguin or Robot? EP

Urban Surf Kings - Penguin or Robot?

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 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.

Dirty Fuse release Last Wave

Dirty Fuse, Last Wave, Youtube, release

Dirty Fuse's previous album  was definitely worth a listen: it seamlessly gave a surf twang to Greek rebetika songs. They're back to business hittin the surf with Last Wave, though they're still clearly up for a challenge. In this quick listen as I'm posting this I'm hearing LOTS of interesting saxophone, a mix of fuzz, glassy euro-styled guitar, some good ol' deep twangin'.. and that's just a start.

Thee Imperial Royales release It's Dark

Thee Imperial Royales - It's Dark

Thee Imperial Royales have only released one Halloween EP, and they're back again with two Halloween songs. I can dig it. Their bandcamp page says "This is the latest communique from those inside The Black Lodge. It will start with one song, when we say it starts. When you've forgotten, another song may be added. Then another. Soon the story emerges"" Not sure if that means they'll be tacking a few songs onto this? As far as I know this is digital-only so it's a possibility. Give it a listen.

ROMANTIC release BLACKSURF

ROMANTIC - BLACKSURF

I always thought surf and noise rock should hang out more, and that's certainly the case here. ROMANTIC aren't normally a surf group, there's usually a lot more noise and a lot more goth and sometimes a few words, but underneath it all I can confirm that there are surf songs on this EP: especially Misirlou under "blacksurf ii". Check the bandcamp stream out and let me know what you think
