“Sleepwalk? What’s that? There’s no such thing as a slow dance song on The Chukukos’ latest album, Deep Latin Surf Attack! From La Virgen De Las Barricadas all the way to Surfeando en Los 90’s, The Chukukos never let up on the high-speed sonic surf shockwave! This is the sort of surf that wouldn’t be out of place in a high speed car chase!" - Derk - The Surfphony of Derstruction 2000

"Great record!" Hunter King - Storm Surge of Reverb

Astro-Surf a-Go-Go

Canada's Urban Surf Kings are at it again. Astro Surf a-Go-Go is the band's brand new full length, featuring 13 instro-surf tunes for your listening and dancing pleasure. The album was recorded live off the floor (with minimal overdubs), just like the way surf music should be.

This is a co-release from Greece's Surf Cookie Records, and Canada’s Reverb Ranch.

The Reverbivores Debut Release "Orbit To Intercept"

The Reverbivores announce the upcoming release of their debut EP Orbit to Intercept!

Orbit to Intercept is an instrumental surf music expedition through time and space. The seven-track EP takes the listener from the sun-drenched coast of Morocco to the stark beauty of low-Earth orbit. Spaghetti Western gunslingers have it out with Volga boatmen while Cuban revelers party with David Bowie. Throughout the journey, The Reverbivores deliver melodic reverberations true to their name.

Performing throughout Northern California since 2016, The Reverbivores have honed a style of instrumental surf that pays tribute to the early masters of the genre while breaking with many of the genre’s strictures. Complex guitar lines, themes and orchestration blend into a cinematically psychedelic musical melange.

Produced and released by the band, Orbit to Intercept was tracked to 2” tape and mixed over five days at historic The WallySound in Oakland, California.

Orbit to Intercept is available now for pre-order from iTunes and will be available from the leading digital providers June 26, 2018 and on CD July 19, 2018. In addition, a 7” inch two-track collector’s edition vinyl release will be available later this summer. CD and vinyl may be purchased at our shows and from www.thereverbivores.com.

"Spin The Bottle" - Frankie and the Pool Boys

image

Frankie and the Pool Boys announce the release of their third full length album, "Spin the Bottle" with a release date of May 8 on Double Crown Records. Produced by Dusty Watson.

Spin The Bottle defines the free ranging Pool Boys approach to songwriting. Like the best mix tapes, the music on this album is all over the map. Just hit the shuffle button and you get fast ones, slow ones, some groovers, some art, some dopey stuff, and some vocals. Vocals? (Yes, and with apologies to our “instro only” fans!) Drift back to the loose radio days of the 60s when you might have a vocal and an instrumental version of the same song racing up the charts at the same time – think “Grazin’ in the Grass, “In With The In Crowd,” “Ghost Riders,” “Born Free” and many more. It was huge fun to hear how the same song can be rearranged in different ways, and it gave the Pool Boys a chance to work with some talented Bay Area vocalists.

Spin The Bottle, take a chance and embrace change— and the biggest change on this album is that the Pool Boys line-up solidified into a tight, consistent unit. So, rather than every song featuring guest artists sending in tracks from around the world like on the first two Pool Boys albums, the whole CD was recorded in one weekend with the dedicated band of five. Dusty Watson (drummer for The Sonics, Dick Dale, Agent Orange, Slacktone) was brought in as chief ass-kicker (Producer). Ass-kick he did, whipping the Pool Boys into a tight unit, streamlining arrangements, encouraging dynamics, all with attention to sonic detail.

Spin The Bottle is Frankie & Pool Boys third full length album on the Double Crown Records label and features 20 songs. That’s 14 new originals, 2 covers (Booker T and the MGs, The Surf Coasters) and 4 vocal versions. Every effort was made to use vintage instruments, recording equipment and techniques. The album cover art was created by legendary Oslo artist Fred Lammers.

Coming soon- videos, tour dates, free stuff, complete chord charts and tablature
