Girl Over Planet debuts with EP release

image

Link

As these tunes are catching on and getting played on radio shows and podcasts, I wanted to formally introduce ‘Girl Over Planet’ to the surf community.

From far inland Russia, they bring a precise and finely tuned melodious collection of surf tracks. A good example of how they’re taking surf music and making it reflect a regional influence is their cover of the Tetris theme song (it was originally a Russian folk song before used by Nintendo). This EP is a great listen, especially when we’re all stuck at home in quarantine. It’ll lift your spirits!!!

ADD The Cruncher's New CD Recorded Analog

AAD – The Cruncher's new CD was recorded analog

When Herbert Hooke (71) retired from his day job a couple of years ago he decided to record, arrange and produce music in the dark cold months from October to March and release a cd every year. Long Walk Home (NPR 10014), Schlicktown Surf (NPR 10016), Stormy (NPR 10019) and Da Capo (NPR 10020) were the results.

In April 2019 I received two CDRs with 33 tracks that Herbert had recorded for a new cd. He asked me to name 20 tracks for inclusion on his new cd.

My choice was:
1. Guitar King
2. Desert Ride (Herbert's own composition)
3. Watch Your Steps
4. Pagean Rock or Caroline
5. Hot Doggin'
6. Paradise
7. Asphalt Wipeout
8. Jungle Stomp
9. Movin' or Failsafe
10. Wild Weekend
11. '55 Ford
12. Hells Bells
13. Gear
14. Aztec
15. The Moon Of Manakoona
16. Angry Generation
17. Crying, Waiting, Hoping
18. Albatross
19. Loving Her Was Easier
20. Das Boot

Then Herbert happened to find a 24 tracks mixing desk from the mid 1980s (his 8 track mixing desk he had from that time up to 2003 was a "children's toy" compared to the "new old vintage one" he told me). However a lot of work had to be put in setting up the desk for his demands and he had to learn to use it. That's why he had to check his already recorded songs how they sound the analog system. He recorded some new tracks and added some others. So here is Herbert's final choice of songs marked red in the list above plus the additional tracks that were not in my choice list or added later last summer to winter.

No Place Like Home
Long Walk Home
The Last Walk
Big Hair
Sidewalk Surfin' Scene
Deep Surf
Tenderfoot

When I asked Herbert why he didn't include his own song "Desert Drive" he told me that is sounds great digitally but "THIN and slack" in analog - so he still has to do some work on it in the future to make it as good as he wants it to be.

In late December I received a CDR with 14 analog recorded tracks and I feel they sound great. Herbert wanted to learn if they sound really good on cheap equipment and he believes that if so then the songs would also sound good on high end quality players.
