- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
NEW RELEASE: Mariachi Death Squad's debut EP "You've Been Hit By..." now available on CD and digital download.
Mariachi Death Squad are a reverb crashin', point breakin' power surf trio. The experience of Mariachi Death Squad is akin to that of the Fujiwara Effect where, after a delicate and beautiful dance of nature, everything is then BLOWN AWAY.
A new 7" record is coming out in the next days for SURFER JOE!
We are quite excited because this is our first real "Eleki style" release and even if we have toured 2 times in Japan, love and collect Japanese music, this wanted to look absolutely Japanese in every aspect.
The single, produced by Hi-Tide Recordings, includes:
HIROSHI NO SUBARASHI RAMEN
(by Surfer Joe, originally from the album "Swell Of Dwell", 2018 Dionysus Records)
This song is dedicated to our friend Eddie Ugata of the band El Caminos for a nice experience we had together with him in 2017 while in Kobe.
BLACK SAND BEACH
(by Yuzo Kayama, a song that many of you know well of course)
The band's line up for this recording is actually the band that toured Japan in 2018:
Surfer Joe (guitar) - Jonpaul Balak (bass) - Vincent Minervino (drums)
Where to get it:
Available from September 6th in vinyl at the Hi-Tide Recordings online store and at all shows of Surfer Joe during the U.S. Tour. Also, it is released in digital via the Bandcamp of Surfer Joe (surferjoe.bandcamp.com), CDBaby and all major streaming platforms.
The debut full-length album from Tampa's Black Valley Moon on Sharawaji Records now available for pre-order. With a release date of 8/31/19, Halloween comes a couple of months early with this collection of instrumental guitar rock songs inspired by surf, and other sounds of the 60's. Includes members of seminal 90's punk band Down By Law. Available on CD and on Bandcamp.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chewbacca's album, "The Return From Echo Lake" will be available on LP, CD and digital download from 14th September 2019. The album was recorded in Valencia, Spain, and was produced by Brian Scott Teasley (Birdstuff), a founding member of Man or Astro-man?
The album is available for pre-order now, including an exclusive bonus download track during the pre-order period - a cover of Por Un Tubo by Lost Acapulco.
The Turbosonics have released a single from their soon-to-be-released, five original song EP, "Center of the Sun." The single, "Bedrock Stomp" (limited release available only on Bandcamp) also includes B-side: "Journey to the Center of the Sun. The full EP release is set for August 20, 2019, and will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc.
Bedrock Stomp is a tribute to the teenage dances, or Surfer Stomps, in 1960s Southern California. The Stomps were often headlined by Dick Dale, who pioneered ear-splitting, 100-watt tube amplifiers and surf beat rhythms. This song also employs a fuzzy-gritty guitar influenced by the likes of Davie Allan, the American guitarist best known for his work on soundtracks to various teen and biker movies in the 1960s.
The start of a new day brings a golden sunrise, and inspires us to continue our quest for the endless summer. This tune is a musical journey through varying rhythms, patterns, and melodies - all coated in that dripping wet reverb, which classic surf music is known for. Choose your ride and join the Turbosonics as they Journey to the Center of the Sun.
The wait is over!

Our third release is a 7-song EP with 4 originals and 3 cover songs, featuring "Midnight Confessions" from Tarantino's "Jackie Brown".
The 2 rockin' surf originals are "You're Gonna Lose That Curl" and "(Please Don't) Dead End"- (that title come from a scene at the end of Tarantino's "Death Proof").
We do a version of Brian Wilson's "Pet Sounds" with a nice guitar solo over the end, and our version of Link Wray's "The Shadow Knows". That's our drummer Tony on the big laughs.
Then there's our original spy epic "Shaken Not Stirred".
Finally, we threw in a song we wrote for Michael Carr's mystery film "The Key". It has a lovely vocal by Elena Barakhovski. Thanks for listening!
It is also available for streaming & download on iTunes/apple music, Spotify, Amazon & bandcamp.
