New Topic

Shouldn't forget Deep Eddy Records 'Radical Waves' comp. That was a choice collection as well.

THE KBK ... This is the last known signal. We offer Sanctuary.

And don't leave out The Man From Ravcon's "The Traveler" - that one really speaks to me.

"Best Surf Releases of 2012" would be an incomplete list without Surf-Age Nuggets: Trash & Twang Instrumentals: 1959-1966.

There have been so many fantastic releases this year! Too many to list and impossible for me to come up with a best of. These are the ones that are still in steady rotation on my stereo.

RoadRunners "Rampage"
Rev Hank "Longhorn"
Maeds Dominos "The Big T"
The Madeira "Tribal Fires"
The Shockwave! "Death Race"
The Surfaders "Dragstrip Murder Mystery"
Biarritz Boys "Enjoy the Hip, Slick, Ultra-Violent and Super Sexy Surfsound of ..."
"Brave New Surf [VA]"

Also:

Hell-O-Tiki "Attack of Lady Octopussy"
The Phantom Four "Morgana"
Los Fantasticos "The Devil Went Down to George Street"
The Mariners "Demon Surf!"
Meshugga Beach Party "Hot Rod Hanukkah"
Pedrito Diablo & Los Cadáveras "El Cuerno del Chivo"
"Il Triello: Three Western Tales [VA]"

Sheesh. I could list even more, but perhaps that would be compulsive, like my buying habit ...

Tom,
you always do a great job of getting lots of new releases.
Good Job man. I am envious.

Music has been such a large part of my life that to have a favorite of anything is impossible for me to list. I've heard most of what has been listed and I'm very pleased to be alive now. I hope next year is as good as this has been. I have so many favorites I don't know what to play! Big Grin

The amazing return of Man Or Astro-Man? and their Vol.1&2 Analog series records! Yes

Beauty and the Liquidmen - Half Human

http://beautyandtheliquidmen.bandcamp.com/

Monsters Of Surf
Daikaiju

The usual suspects here in my top 3:
2. Surf Age Nuggets box
3. The Madeira - tribal fire

and on number 1: Blind Rage And Violence - the end of rock an roll
The best Link Wray tribute record ever (and the best record Deke ever made after 'Pabst Blue Ribbon').

Would love to get my hands on the new MOAM vinyls but they are hard to get here in Europe.

Sounds great, just ordered it on CD from CDBaby.
Cheers!

Wow, thanks guys! I wish I had seen this sooner. I'm really glad you all dug Half Human, especially my favorite humanoids on the planet, Daikaiju.

I just released a single that isn't quite as surfy/melodic as Half Human (free download at the link provided), and I'm knee deep in work on a full-length and a split with a friend's band. I was directed to this thread from someone who purchased the single. I frequently lurk around SG101, but I had no idea this thread existed.

Again, thank you.

No idea what this is. I think I will subject my family to it.

I'm really digging The Beauty and the Liquidmen stuff! Very cool!! The reverb drip on Space Titanium is ridiculous! Worship

A little off-topic, but...The Beauty and the Liquidmen reminds me a lot of an indie guitarist acquaintance of mine who makes a ton of this sort of weirdness in his spare time under the name Peopleperson:

Maybe they ought to join forces.
