Insanitizers' "Reverb Rockets" album welcomes you to 2022

photo

Insanitizers' "Reverb Rockets" album welcomes you to 2022 with 14 high-adventure newly recorded instrumentals. Hear an energetic re-recording of our award-winning song "Shootout" and memorable new songs such as "Improper Tango," "Wild Loco Motive," and "Spacewalk." It's at https://insanitizers.bandcamp.com/album/reverb-rockets .

Brief comments:
Pristine reverb tones with harmonic distortion effect used only in sections of Fright Night and Doctor Space.

  1. Improper Tango. Gorgeous tone, strong melodies. No one can hear it only once.

  2. Wild Loco Motive. Runaway fast yet on track. Best with headphones.

  3. Fright Night. Genuinely scary. Two bass guitars accompany, one on each channel.

  4. Spacewalk. Impressionistic amalgam of sleepwalk with somewhere over the rainbow.

  5. The Escape. Bluesy surf with emotional improvisations in the middle.

  6. Surfin' the Stars 2. Rocketing adventures.

  7. Yup. Bonafide organ with colossal tone and strong beat. Onions, onions!

  8. Shootout 2. Grows in intensity.

  9. Exotic Planet Charm. Psychedelic surf guitar. Twangy bass guitar lead for last verse. A scifi theme.

  10. Huntington Surf 2. High surf guitar.

  11. Murder in Paradise. Danger twang.

  12. Spacedrunk OOO. Snappy. Like Popcorn.

  13. Galactic Tide 2. Organlike guitar accompaniment and bridge lead insanitizes it.

  14. The Arrival of Doctor Space 2. Another scifi theme...knock knock...Doctor Space Who?

Surf On!


New Release: The Green Reflectors & Danger!! Death Ray split EP

Hamilton Ontario’s Danger!! Death Ray and Bridgewater Nova Scotia’s The Green Reflectors have teamed up to release a modern surf split extraordinaire of four original tunes! Both ensembles are born from similar influences, such as The Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet and The Ventures, but have forged their own paths down the road of instrumental rock. Although their styles depart from their common influences, this split brings together the heavier side of their music: hot and gritty!

It only makes sense that Bad Chad’s favourite band, The Green Reflectors, are hot rod obsessed, titling their tracks after Hot Wheels die-casts and hanging out with pinups models. Danger!! Death Ray’s tracks wonder how the first human in space passed his time upon returning to earth, and what may lurk in the darker recesses of our universe. What better way to bring together hot rods and outer space than through the bands paying tribute to The Ventures on two album covers?!

Each band is providing a digital release of their tracks from the split on their BandCamp and all streaming platforms released October 31, 2021.

https://thegreenreflectors.bandcamp.com/
https://dangerdeathray3.bandcamp.com/

For all you vinyl freaks, there is a super limited edition 7” lathe being cut by White Noise Lathe Cut Records in Rapid City South Dakota. It will also be available for order through Bandcamps when ready to ship.

BEWARE OF BLAST releases new Surf Rock Halloween single SPECIAL FORCES

After a one year break, the Surf Rock band BEWARE OF BLAST release their new Halloween single SPECIAL FORCES. The song is an instrumental track inspired by the surf music of the 60s and the film music of American action series of the 70s.

SPECIAL FORCES is structured like a short story and is about a hired murder of a woman. The killer escapes in his car and is chased by the police through the night. At the end of a fast car chase there is a massive collision with a police car.

"We look forward to Halloween every year, especially to all the new spooky songs. With SPECIAL FORCES we have now released our third Halloween single in three years", says Jimi Roll of BEWARE OF BLAST.

The new single is available worldwide on all major music platforms like Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, Napster und Tidal.
