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.”

Well, last year two powerhouse alternative blues bands released a split album called Death Blues vs. The Dirty Spliff.  20 Watt Tombstone from Wisconsin and Left Lane Cruiser from Indiana joined forces to record a raw power album. Their heavy blues is very addictive and features 3 new Left Lane Cruiser tracks and 3 new 20 Watt Tracks!

Whiskey Fueled Blues-driven Rock ‘n’ Roll From Left Lane Cruiser

Starting with Left Lane Cruiser which is a synonym for energetic blues rock with a healthy doses of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Songs like Laid to the Bone and Slow Grind are full of addictive slide guitar tunes and contain  some of heavy  vocals. “Special Delivery” is remarkable for its rhythmic vocals and that guitar solo is kicking some ass.

Left Lane Cruiser is a whiskey fueled two man frenzy of blues-driven rock’n’roll noise straight from Fort Wayne, Indiana promise to hit you like a shock wave and show you a foot-stompin’ good time.

Heavy Blues Rock Duo

Left Lane Cruiser is comprised of Joe Evans (Freddy J IV) on slide guitar and vocals and Pete Dio on the drums. The raw blues power duo of LLC have practiced through thick and thin to hone a sound unlike any other and have been together long enough to have previously released a couple of self-produced EPs.

“Let your soul drive what you do” is the premise of their music, “give it all you got, and everything is an instrument

20 Watt Tombstone’s fantastic song titles

Besides the fantastic music arrangements of 20 Watt Tombstone you also have to like their song titles. Hits like “Your man’s a Jerk” and “Shitty Ex Girlfriend” make you curious of their music. Well and if you listen to 20 Watt Tombstone you get powerful , raw blues rock built on steady drums, slide guitar and Lemmy-esque vocals.

If  the White stripes, The black keys, and Left lane cruiser had an illegitimate love child with Lemmy & Hunter S. Thompson documented the whole thing

Raw and Heavy songs: kick ass Blues Rock

Since the bands formation in 2011, the Wisconsin Duo 20 Watt Tombstone  has been receiving an unreal amount of attention, they tell us on their Facebook page. Their brand of brash un-tethered alt. blues rock mixed with Metal,country and punk blends into a sometimes comedic monster that cannot be easily pinned down, and at times seems so over the top it cant be serious.
