- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
SRW222 Robotron - Atomium (Jacket CD)
Atomium is a 9 track album for fans of instrumental surf music, robots, kaiju monsters, sci-fi themes and more robots.
Influenced by Man...or Astroman, Dick Dale, Los Straightjackets, Robotron have managed to build their own sound mixing the reverb from surf music and the overdrive from rock and roll.

SRW219 - The Angry Red Planet - "Captain... The Klingons Have Surrounded Uranus!" (Jacket CD)
Combining elements of surf, rockabilly, 60’s psychedelia, Morricone, 70’s TV show themes, vintage sci fi/horror, and a touch of sophomoric humour; The Angry Red Planet merges the sounds of the rock n roll’s early years with the punk and thrash of the ‘80s. An instrumental mutant hailing from Canada’s North West, creating unexpected and bizarre musical soundscapes... for those who dare!
The Angry Red Planet’s debut features vintage aural aesthetics channeled through unique and unlikely arrangements. Alternately blistering, ridiculous, and introspective, “Captain... The Klingons Have Surrounded Uranus!” is a warped journey through 8 disparate yet cohesive tracks of guitar forward instrumentals that don’t take themselves too seriously.

SRW213 Jim and the Sea Dragons - Sous les Paves, la Plage! (Jacket CD)
‘Sous les Pave, la Plage’ is a tribute to French instrumental bands from the early 1960’s. With influences ranging from Gypsy Jazz to Hank Marvin and the Shadows, the new CD is an exciting look in to the pre-Beatles instrumental music scene that was happening in France.
Jim and the Sea Dragons are a guitar-centric Florida based combo with influences ranging from 60's Surf, Pop and a dash of Exotica.

Did you know that today is a special day? It’s the 9 year anniversary of the the world's number 1 surf music station and what an incredible nine years it has been! It’s hard to believe that even just nine years ago there was no radio station dedicated to surf and instro. In July 2013 we made that a reality, for the first time ever, with new bands being broadcast shoulder to shoulder with established acts.
The number of bands in the surf community has flourished too! We would like to thank all the listeners, bands and labels that have supported us. Don’t forget we are donation supported and you can financially support us with a donation or a StreamAd (which is even better if you are a band or label).
