Sharawaji Records is proud to announce that The Young Barons - Hella California (SRW078 CD) is now shipping.
The Young Barons are teenage surf sensations from the Bay Area of California hell bent on keeping rock n roll alive. They've been playing wild shows across the state with top acts, and are being featured in an upcoming documentary about an influential first wave band.
The Young Barons are -
Justice James - drums
Anthony Denny - guitar
Raul Martinez - bass
These guys are the real deal, there is a hot-rodded intensity to the performances recorded at GET REEL STUDIOS, and the master by Gary Hobish brings out lush, psychedelic undertones. It's nine tracks of rock n roll riot celebrating surf music and California culture that you'll want to spin again and again.
The vinyl edition SRW077 12 inch LP will be out in a few weeks. Everything about the vinyl album was recorded, mixed, mastered, printed, pressed and manufactured in California to make this 100% legit.

Where else to go in a pandemic but to space?
Echo Sector's riffs were created in a lab at the heart of a black hole by the nefarious Dr. Eh. But this sound was too big and too wicked to be contained. Wielding reverb-drenched guitar lines, driving drums and soaring synths, this sound shattered the silence of space. Now these five surf warriors ride the gnarly ripcurl of the galactic tide to bring some sun-sized slabs of rock to the ears of distant planets.
For fans of Man Or Astro-Man? and Daikaiju, Echo Sector's new album ...From 12th Planet takes surf rock to new nebular heights.
