The Turbosonics’ Surf songs celebrating car cruises, B-movies, street racing, rockabilly and pin-up girls,

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.

Garage infused Rhythm and Blues Rock on “Be Brave” LP by the Strange Boys

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.

LISTEN: Preview of “Desert Center” Guantanamo Baywatch’s new album

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”.

New Album “Same Sun Same Moon” by Rocking Duo Little Hurricane

This April Little Hurricane released their third full-length studio album called Same Sun Same Moon. the 2-person alternative rock band from San Diego, California, featuring frontman Anthony “Tone” Catalano and drummer Celeste “C.C.” Spina are back with 12 new tracks and ready to roll around Europe and the US!

Interesting about the backstory of the album is that while they were recording in their studio (built on Native American lands), the guitarist was “inexplicably drawn” to remove his shoes and climb an ominous 3,400-foot mountain in a “trance-like state,” without food and water or notifying his wife.

“We may not all share the same beliefs, but people are still more alike than different. No matter if you’re in San Diego or South Africa, living 10,000 years ago or today, we all look up to see the same sun and same moon. We are all connected in one way or another. This message of unity beats at the heart of Little Hurricane’s latest release, Same Sun Same Moon.”
