Frankie & The Pool Boys - The Wet Season CD (Double Crown)
With the complete selling out of the Frankie and the Pool Boys catalogue, Double Crown Records presents an anthology of songs from their first three albums. Packed with 79+ minutes and 27 songs in total, it also features four new cuts. The track list was chosen largely based on how well the songs were received in a live setting, so the selection really was decided by fans of the band.
All of the Pool Boys’ three albums (the 2008 eponymous first album, 2013’s The Adventures of Cap’n Coconuts, and the Pipeline Magazine Album of the Year for 2018, Spin The Bottle) are well represented. Of course, “Ewa on the Beach” (voted the #3 Surf Revival song by listeners of North Sea Surf Radio) is included, as are the band’s most familiar songs, “The Wet Season,”“Skinny Dippin’,”“Teke Teke Teke” and “Tan Line Fever.”
As the Pool Boys take this moment to look back at thirteen years of recording and touring, they also look forward to new music and touring. A new album is currently being rehearsed with plans for recording and release in early 2022.
Tracks: Moorea Mon Amour - Ewa On The Beach - Skinny Dippin' - Tan Line Fever - Amber Waves - The Wet Season - The Golden State - Magyara - Spin The Bottle - Dreams (Live) - Raise Hell - Tic Toc - The Raven - Prayer Wheel - The Whammy - Summer Cold - Cat Fight - A Man Called Dirt - Seafoam Angels - Organic Matters - Magic River - Finito Bandito - El Valenciano - Teke, Teke, Teke - Poser - Game Of Thrones - No Surf Today

The Surfaders - Shaken And Disturbed CD (Double Crown)
The Surfaders are a Dutch surf/instrumental rock combo that yearns to create the soundtracks of B-movies yet to be made, with a cinematic sound they call "Surf-Noir". After winning over fans worldwide with their first two albums, 2021 brings the release of their finest collection of songs yet - Shaken & Disturbed. Twelve dazzling instrumental classics that conjure up images of danger, intrigue and...well shaken cocktails! Guitar fanatics will swoon over the melodies and sounds heard on this disc - a highlight is "Moscow Mule", which the band describes as "So fiery and limey fresh that you may well mistake it for a soda. If you do, expect this cross-bred liquid quadruped to kick you in the head as hard as the Siberian winter is cold. We call it Breznjev’s brain-freeze."
Tracks: Moscow Mule - Death In The Afternoon - Full Moon - Tequila Matador - Henrietta - Sex On The Beach - Alien Secretion - Strawberry Daiquiri - Follow That Black Rabbit - Zombie - Stargazer - Dark & Stormy
The Surfaders - Shaken And Disturbed CD - DCCD88 - $12.75 (Order From Double Crown Records)
