Blackball Bandits release their 1st EP

Submitted by The_Cholla on September 19, 2016.
Bands

Hello SG101,

We are super excited to share our 1st EP, "Confrontation on the Extraterrestrial Highway", available through digital downloads or CDs on Bandcamp : https://blackballbandits.bandcamp.com/album/confrontation-on-the-extraterrestrial-highway

image

We are a band from Orange County, California, formed in 2015. We play some energetic instrumental music that mixes different sub-genres of surf, from western to sci-fi, from traditional to spooky, with a touch of exotic influences here and there.

This EP includes 6 songs, that take you along the lonely roads of Nevada ("Along Highway 375"), Central America ("Azteca Verano") and the old West ("Escape in Durango") with some stops along the coast ("Slalom Under the Pier", "The Gillins Beach Secret"). The EP ends with "A Fistful of Gold in the West", our surf tribute to the great Ennio Morricone.

Enigmascope Vol 1, new album by Retrofoguetes

Submitted by mocoto on September 07, 2016.
Bands

image

The Brazilian band Retrofoguetes just released their new album "Enigmascope Vol. 1". The album pays homage to 60's spy movies and all the tracks were composed having scenes from an imaginary movie in mind.

From "Agente Duplo" to "O homem de Moscou", the movie has pursuit scenes, a bad guy ("El Vibora"), a Bond girl ("Miss Cuba") and travels the world with "Hong Kong A-Go-Go" and "Conexão Istambul".

The algum is already available on CD and on youtube. It will soon be available on vinyl and on most digital platforms.

The Concussions - Newaygo Sound Machine Out Now!

Submitted by Double-Crown-Records on September 03, 2016.

The Concussions - Newaygo Sound Machine CD (Double Crown Records)

This long-awaited disc by The Concussions is here! A dozen raw, twangy surf and guitar instrumental tunes, delivered by guys that are masters of their instruments and know their way around a recording studio. Hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, this combo is led by Dick Chiclet on lead guitar, who also produced recorded and mixed this release. His production style, which favors the use of vintage gear and is inspired by Joe Meek and others in the past and present that have stuck to analog recording techniques. This all goes towards delivering a disc that will appeal to surf and vintage instrumental rock n' roll aficionados, as well as those that are just looking to move and groove on the dance floor. If you love the early 60s Brit instro sound of The Tornados or Shadows, or the more modern instrumental recordings of The Kaisers, you will absolutely flip over this disc! The disc art is truly out of this world - incredible illustration work by Shawn Dickinson!

Tracks: Pump City - Trouble Gum - A Skilled, Generous Lover - Have Mersey - Moonballs - Flicksville - Polyester Fester - Whack Job - Dock Rockblock - Storm Team Dave - In A Mystic Mood - Brain Bats

The Concussions - Newaygo Sound Machine CD - DCCD68 - $12.75 (Order Now!)

Martin Cilia - new EP - Sleep Walk

Submitted by Mandy on August 07, 2016.
Bands

SLEEP WALK is an instrumental song written and released in 1959 by Santo & Johnny Farina (and Santo’s wife, Ann). It’s been recorded hundreds of times over the years by many diverse artists including The Shadows, Jeff Beck and Brian Setzer.

Now, in 2016, it’s time for Martin Cilia to release his version, accompanied by Lloyd G on the drums.

"As can be expected from Cilia, production is slick as all get-out with reverbed electric guitar floating on for miles on Sleepwalk."
Hunter, Storm Surge of Reverb

image

Martin Cilia is Australia's premier surf rock guitarist, a member of legendary Australian surf band, The Atlantics and currently on the road with Mental As Anything. He has released six successful solo albums, with this latest, the 5 track Sleep Walk EP being released in August 2016.
