They are hailing from Chicago and deliver a mix of Rock ‘n’ Roll and Punk Rock, a just released a new single called “Torn To Pieces”. Death and Memphis is loud as we like it. These guys are full of heavy fast thriving riffs and powerful vocals.
“Everybody Knows” is the debut single of Van der Neer. These guys hailin’ from York in the UK deliver fine grooving Rock music in their own blend. Inspired by the long road bands like Cream, Led Zeppelin and later The Black Keys and the Raconteurs traveled, Van Der Neer delivers approachable soul soaked melodies, grooves, and tight ass rhythms.
The Turbosonics are delivering Surf Rock like it should be: sleazy, and fast thriving. Their music also pairs well with car cruises, B-movies, street racing, rockabilly, pin-up girls, the 1960’s, and just about any event involving fun, fun, fun. The Band released two full studio albums since their start in 2008: “The Turbosonics” in 2012 and ” Tres Gatos Suave” in 2015.
With their hit song “Be Brave ” they bring you back to fifties Rhythm and Blues tracks in style of Bo Diddley‘s sound. The Strange Boys are also clearly influenced by garage rock bands. These songs are laid back and most of the time create a vibe that makes you forget the troubles in life.
The Surf rockers from Guantanamo Baywatch are set to release a new album called Desert Center this August. The garage fueled surf rock of this Portland based band has made many people enthusiastic over the years. I’m sure Desert Center is a new shout out for the fine gritty surf sound we like so much.
Over the last few days, more and more sneak previews of this album are released on the internet. At first sight, my favorites anyway are “Area 69” a song that kicks off faster than a speed train and “Blame Myself” which is a ballad Guantanamo Baywatch style. Last but not least ” Video” where the edgy basslines really dig deep.
“Bassist Chevelle Wiseman drives the tune with a thick, throbbing riff while drummer Chris Scott ruthlessly pounds his kit with a crashing clarity”
Guantánamo Baywatch’ blazing nuggets
The band describes the sound of Desert Center pretty nice: “It’s an inadvertent juxtaposition maintained through the entirety of Desert Center, with blazing instrumental nuggets like “The Scavenger” alternating with the proto-grunge and golden oldies mash-up of a track like “Blame Myself.“
Desert Center on Suicide Squeeze Records
Guantánamo Baywatch’ released their previous album Darling… It’s Too Late, in 2015. Now we are ready for Desert Center which will be released on the Seattle based Suicide Squeeze Records. This album retains the “raw aesthetics of a Hasil Adkins single, but has the added heft and thump afforded by a modern studio”.
