V/A - Surf Nut! Surfites & Thunderchiefs 7" EP (Double Crown / Wormtone)
We're incredibly stoked to have released a fabulous new 7" EP featuring The Surfites and The Thunderchiefs, containing two brand new songs from each band! It's a joint effort with Double Crown and Wormtone Records, and will definitely be one of the most talked about (and listened to) releases of the summer! The amazing sleeve art, shown above, was done by famed artist (and Thunderchiefs guitarist) Mike Guerrero.
On one side you get Swedish faves The Surfites with "This Time Tomorrow" and "Hot Dog On A Stick". Flip it over and you get two more boss tunes from Austin, TX surf combo The Thunderchiefs - "Kook Patrol" and "Tomsco Twist".
While the music and amazing artwork is best enjoyed in the 7" vinyl format, we do understand that many of you don't have turntables. For you, we have the digital version of the EP, which can be downloaded at: iTunes ~ CD Baby ~ Emusic
Tracks: The Surfites: This Time Tomorrow - Hot Dog On A Stick / The Thunderchiefs: Kook Patrol - Tomsco Twist
If you follow Double Crown on Facebook you probably already saw this, but we're really stoked to announce the release of "7+ Inches Of Love" by The Apemen. It's a reissue of their popular 2000 release that quickly went out of print. We've added 3 extra live tracks as well as "24 Hours From Tulsa", which featured on the That's New Pussycat compilation CD in Italy (which explains the "+" in the CD title).
The physical CD release will be followed by digital release for the first time. The whole CD has been remastered for the best sound quality possible for these tracks.
Tracks: Bajjad - Crunch - Invasion Of The Apemen - Cruisin' - Intoxica - El Tortura - Percolator Stomp - Pogo a Gogo - Toronado - Surf Dracula (45 version) - Baha-Ree-Ba - When Johnny Comes Wreckin' Home - Shake Your Hoover (alternate) - Squad Car - Het Grote Surffeest (live at KFJC) - Miserlou (live at KFJC) - Queen Jacula (live) - Cor Steijn Rides The Wild (live) - Toronado/Bongo Bongo (live) - 24 Hours From Tulsa
Through the end of February you can get this fine disc for a buck off the standard retail price!

As many of you probably have seen by now, a brand new compilation album is coming out - Brave New Surf. What you may not know is that the impetus behind this album is twofold. First, to present some of the very best surf bands playing today. Secondly, to use this compilation as a promotional tool to expose new audiences to this great music. Double Crown Records agreed to print up extra copies of the album with the sole purpose of sending them out to music reviewers, websites and magazines. But to do this will take extra funds. Packaging and postage costs add up quick, thus we came up with this Kickstarter project.
Please go to our Kickstarter page and check out all the premiums and make a donation if you can. Absolutely 100% of all funds donated will go towards the promotion of this record and if we're successful this may lead to more releases. If you can, share the project on all your social media and email all your friends. This is our big push to get surf music out into a more public consciousness and our success depends upon you.
Remember, there is a limited time for this campaign, it concludes on Friday Dec 9th, so we have to reach our goal by then.
Threesome is a new Serbian combo that delivers the sound of explosive surf punk that doesn’t care much about time or place. “Adriatica” is their debut full-length CD release, packed with 12 blistering surf rock instros, some with a slight punk/indie rock influence. There are 11 originals, plus a cover of Man Or Astroman’s “Interstellar Hardrive”.
