The Me Gustas: New Release "Benthic Exploration" available now!

Well, we are proud to share with you our latest creation, "Benthic Exploration"!

Bandcamp
Facebook

Every time we put a new release out, it is a bit nerve racking. You hope that folks will give it a listen and if you are lucky, like it! Trying our best to create a "rougher" sound emulating our beloved ocean, we pushed the instruments and with some master mixing I feel we got that turbulent water feel.

We are so very thankful to Eric Smith, Mike Hickel, Caleb Dunkle of SNAFU Family for being amazing people. Genuine, giving and just all around wonderful people. A huge thank you to Gregory Manchess for allowing us to use his killer artwork.

To everyone who has supported us, purchased our music, played our music on your show, etc., thank you.
"Benthic Exploration" is available for download, we hope you will give it a listen, download it and share it with folks. Reverb, set, go!

Supertubos release Rendezvous

Sharawaji Records is proud to announce the release of Supertubos latest release "Rendezvous".

image

Supertubos is an instrumental rock n roll band based in Reinosa, Northern Spain. Their music is influenced by classic rock, garage rock, country music and other styles but applied more forcefully. Call it surf, hot-rod, spaghetti western or whatever you can think of, it's all about playing at full volume through reverberating guitars and an overwhelming rhythm section. Despite being classed as a "surf band" their main aim is to take their music into a different dimension offering something unique and captivating.

The album was recorded at Moon River Studio has been mixed and mastered by Ibon Larruzea for release by Sharawaji Records as a digital download and Limited Edition Digipack CD.

For publishing, distribution and radioplay enquiries please contact info@sharawaji.com.

Farewell To Dignity, new album from The Spoils out now!

image

Born on the 4th of July, here's our new album, Farewell To Dignity. Pairs well with fireworks and battling corrupt regimes.

Surf rock has a history, but what can it do NOW? That's the question that burns beneath The Spoils' sound, applying familiar Fender reverb to a furious noise rooted in rage at the blatant theft of humanity's wealth and the planet's resources by those who already have too much. Using surf's near-universal populist appeal, The Spoils expand its rhythmic vocabulary beyond beachy backbeats into Brazilian samba, Japanese taiko, Russian folk and gnarled math-rock. Deceptively simple, catchy melodies sweeten the dense layers of feedback and double-picked guitar, with nods to the band's shared love of garage rock and post-punk along the way.

Have a listen and enjoy! For those outside Austin, we'll be playing live on the internet on July 5th at Safehouse session #27 and then having our release party on Saturday, July 8th at Nomad Bar for Second Saturday Surf, hope you can make it!
