Tuck: You occasionally notice such bands. Often it turns out that FB just won't admit they're on FB. Or that they haven't admitted they're a band yet.

WAVESAUCE RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM "STOP GO!"

Submitted by WaveSauce on November 11, 2014.
Bands

"WaveSauce has the best use of the Theremin ever seen! Best thing to
happen to surf music since Man or Astroman." - Audio Gasoline

WaveSauce proudly presents their debut album: "Stop Go!" To celebrate, the band is hosting a CD Release party Friday, December 5, 2014 at 7:00 PM at the Analog Theatre in SE Portland, Oregon. Catch two sets of music from WaveSauce featuring songs from the album, plus DJ Dirtynick will be busting out the vinyl. Great tunes, extra surprises, and lots of fun guaranteed. All ages are welcome, so bring the whole family. Admission is $5, or $10 for the CD and admission. Children 12 and under get in free. 

Wavesauce is a Portland based band entertaining audiences with their intriguing and dynamic interpretations of surf, spyfi, and Amercian pulp. Technically an instrumental band, WaveSauce employs the sounds of a Theremin to fill the role traditionally met by a lead vocalist. 

Their new album, "Stop Go!" offers a unique sound that is cornered by a driving rhythm section, locked to create a backdrop appropriate for classic cruisin'. This groove is synced with solid rhythm guitar, which capably bursts into the foreground with sonic leads throughout the varied tracks. Capped by the beautiful and haunting melodies of the Theremin, the result provides the listeners with the sensation of hopping on a board to catch a gentle wave, only to find themselves blasted into another cosmic dimension. When "Stop Go!" hits the turntable, hold on tightly to the mothership, and simply enjoy the ride. 

"Stop Go!" was recorded and mixed by Carlos Severe Marcelin at "House of Tomato Studios" and consists of original material and covers. Entering the recording process, the primary goal of the band was to capture the energy and spirit of their live performance. WaveSauce believes "Stop Go!" successfully achieves this goal. 

For further information about the band, release party tickets, and purchasing the CD, visit www.wavesauce.com. Analog Café & Theater is located at 720 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, Oregon, and online at www.analogpdx.com.

SURF AND FLAMENCO - new album 'Surf Flamingo'

Submitted by benwoods on September 08, 2014.
Bands

Hello, I'm actually looking to get my new album reviewed.  It's called 'Surf Flamingo' and is a Flamenco guitar approach to classic surf tunes and some spaghetti western classics.

My name is Ben Woods, I live in Long Beach, CA and play Flamenco guitar professionally.  I discovered that American surf classics, Spaghetti western scores and Flamenco music all share a common spirit.  With "Surf Flamingo" I explore this spirit.  I would love to hear some reviews, thoughts and opinions from you guys.  Thanks.  

-Ben Woods
