This was the second week of our pledge drive which is now complete (but remains active for a little while longer if you still want to donate). All covers! Stream it here!
Previously as part of the Gremmy Awards I released a big list of every surf release that I had come across in the past year. This year I decided to keep it as a rolling, consistently updated list. It's less fun at the end of the year, but it's more helpful this way.
A few things to note:
It's fundraising time! The first week had people donate their money in the name of one of three categories, and the category that won the most would dominate the playlist. Those categories were Artificial Intelligence (beepy, boopy, computery surf), Central Intelligence (Spy), and Unintelligent (songs about stupidity).
The donation system wasn't very well equipped for this thing and a lot of donations went uncategorized, but UNINTELLIGENCE won out despite each category getting a pretty good amount of time. Still want to donate? YOU CAN! Want to hear the show again? YOU CAN!
Daikaiju have been around for 20 years and in that time have performed... I'm gonna take a conservative guess and say 2000 shows. And yet in that span they've only released three albums. That isn't a suggestion that they should *do more*, because they're about as active as any band I know, it's just surprising.
