New Eleki 7" from Surfer Joe - Release on September 6th

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 Turbosonics Release a new single, "Bedrock Stomp"

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.

image

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 Tourmaliners - "Tourmaline Dream" Album Review In Pipeline Magazine

Here's our review from Pipeline Magazine:

THE TOURMALINERS
TOURMALINE DREAM

Baja Norte! / Pumphouse / Green Pipe / Tourmaline Dream / Espania / Glasshouse / Adios Saladita /
Leilani's / Stellular / Point Break / Fist Full Of Surf / LG / Amazing Grace (v)

If you're looking for a top notch surf band then look no further. The Touramaliners are Deven Berryhill's San Diego based group, Deven of course being the son of Bob Berryhill and also a member of his dad's band The Surfaris. Deven plays guitar and has written all the songs on this album and he is ably supported by some seasoned and highly skillful musicians, namely: Joe Dameron (guitar), Matt Clowminzer (guitar), Rob Glickman (bass) and Jake Najor (drums). But what is truly exceptional about this CD is the quality of the material. It is not unusual for us to be astounded by the playing ability of many modern surf bands and the way in which they convincingly re-create the surf sound, but then to be disappointed by their inability to write a half decent tune. There's no such problem here because just about every track is richly melodic and all are presented within especially well-crafted arrangements.

The CD opens with Baja Norte! which has a sinister-sounding surf riff at its heart, a sort of surfing Peter Gunn, topped with a tuff melody played on the low strings and skillfully embellished by additional harmony guitar lines. In fact that is a characteristic of many of the tracks: second or third guitar lines being added or woven into the melody to create extra interest. Pumphouse is similarly overflowing with ideas with one memorable sequence following on from another, guitars galore and they all having something special to say. Even Green Pipe, which starts out with a lazy reggae beat but ends up somewhere else altogether by virtue of its wonderful chorus which suddenly flows in and washes warmly over you.

Tourmaline Dream is simply magnificent. It has an almost tropical feel with a solid snare beat set against a busy acoustic rhythm guitar, when in drifts a melody on electric guitar that is so full of yearning and tenderness that you are instantly captivated. And just when you think it cannot possible get any better guest acoustic guitarist Cesar Gervasi suddenly joins in, initially playing in harmony with the electric but then breaking away to solo in an almost jazzy way before again returning to harmonise with the electric. Fabulous!

But really just about every track is great. There's the zippy Espania with its bright and breezy attack of guitars, the brooding Adios Saladita with its grand opening chords and moody lead, Leilani's chirpy sounding ukulele rhythm topped with an Eddy style twang, Point Break with its hectic drum intro, bustling guitars and Surf Beat style middle-eight, the dramatic Fist Full Of Surf with its majestic lead and shades of a spaghetti western theme – all just super! In fact it's easier just to mention the single disappointment on the whole CD, Amazing Grace. This is basically a casual blues featuring just harmonica and acoustic guitar with a longish spoken introduction and a rough vocal praising Jesus and the Lord. It's a rather incongruous inclusion, but just remember that the other twelve tracks are absolutely super and this has to be a top contender for Pipeline's album of the year. Simply superb.
