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!

Janne Haavisto & The Shubie Brothers album "You Are Here" is out!

Hi everybody! Below you'll find some basic info on the record and a few links to videos, Spotify and the record label's shop. Check it out. Hope you like it. Enjoy!

Janne

”You Are Here” is the debut album of Janne Haavisto & The Shubie Brothers and Sisters. Janne Haavisto, the drummer of the late Laika & The Cosmonauts (that called it quits in 2008) makes a comeback to the surf sound with over 20 friends ranging from Los Straitjackets' Pete Curry to childhood friend Sami Yaffa of Hanoi Rocks and New York Dolls. The record is an exciting combination of soul, reggae, latin, exotica and world music influences, blended in cinemascopic soundscapes. Rhythmically versatile, it flows naturally through dreamy slow moods to more hectic moments.

On the album you'll hear Haavisto play guitars, drums, percussion, organ, mellotron, vibraphone, marxophone...

Janne Haavisto & The Shubie Brothers is also a live band:

Janne Haavisto, drums
Abdissa ”Mamba” Assefa, percussion
Miikka Paatelainen, guitar
Jussi Jaakonaho, guitar
Jukka Kiviniemi, bass
