The 2010s were an interesting time for surf music. There were barely a handful of remnants from the great Pulp Fiction explosion, and the tiny boost that surf may have seen from a garage rock explosion was long gone. Surf is an obscure genre, and nobody is waiting for a lifeline to change that. But I think surf has thrived in the meantime.
Well, this show ended up being cut off by an equipment failure in the studio just short of an hour in. Oh well.
It's another Bandcamp Friday, which means bandcamp isn't taking a cut of sales on their platform and 100% of your money goes to the artists. If you've got money burning a hole in your pocket, today is a good day to spend it, and I'm here to help you decide what to spend it on. This isn't all of the surf music released on bandcamp in the past month, and there were good releases in the past month that weren't on bandcamp (and therefore not on this list) but these are some of the standouts.
