The Spiratones present their debut release!
Four-track EP "Next Stop, The Moon!" captures the energy and atmosphere of a hidden coastline; from the sun-kissed grooves of Supergoose, to the moonlit beach party evoked in Spiratonic and Couch Surfer, all the way through to the elemental squall of Toecutter.
To cut a long story short... music to dance to with company or on your lonesome, on a beach or in your bedroom.
Available now at Bandcamp or on CD at live shows.

You know what they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Paris?
Royale with Cheese.
The iconic scene from Pulp Fiction starring John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2019. The film, and especially the soundtrack, started the 'Third Wave of Surf Music'.
'Stories from Shamehill' has been riding this wave since 2012. After an EP (Same same but different - 2015), live single (Made in Amsterdam - 2016) and a 7 "vinyl single (El Salto del Jalapeño / Queen or Tides - 2017) - recorded in Los Angeles during the California Dreamin 'Tour - is there finally the band's first full-length:' Royale with Cheese '.
At the end of the endless Dutch summer of 2019, Stories from Shamehill’s lady and gentlemen entered the legendary Amsterdam IJland Studio to record eight juicy tracks that would not be out of place on the soundtrack of an obscure Quentin Tarantino movie.
On 'Royale with Cheese' the band will take you on a cinematic journey: from the Californian beaches to the Russian tundra and back. Hard and heavy but also spheric and sultry.
You'll dig it the most!

I set up a show with Frankie, King of Hawaii and The Delstroyers tonight and I couldn't go because I am hooked up to a machine that makes noises when I am bad. So Ferenc and the band came and played a whole set in my front room. Unreal generosity from Ferenc, Karen and the rest of the band, I was speechless.
