Gremmy Awards 2018: Best Way-Out Instro Record

Best Way-Out Instro Record of 2018

If not here then where? This is for the bands that are close enough to surf but hard to consider amongst the rest. The weirdos. The criteria here is especially loose, basically up to my own whims, but I think they all have value to surf music as a whole.

Volcano Kings release Crime-Jazz and Film Noir (Volume 1)

Volcano Kings - Crime-Jazz and Film Noir (Volume 1)

Everything Volcano Kings has released has warped surf in exciting ways and done so in such an expert way that it seems like it must come easy. Despite the title, this is surf guitar before it's crime jazz and noir, but it you can find that pounding forward-moving drive of crime-jazz and some smoky mystery from a noir. But then you've got "Mechanical Beast" like some sort of steampunk wild west soundtrack and some cyberpunk electronic mayhem on "Night Life". They're all over the place, but everywhere they go is great.
