Astro Surf a-Go-Go

Astro-Surf a-Go-Go

Canada’s Urban Surf Kings are at it again. Astro Surf a-Go-Go is the band’s brand new full length, featuring 13 instro-surf tunes for your listening and dancing pleasure.  The album was recorded live off the floor (with minimal overdubs), just like the way surf music should be.

There is something for everyone: traditional surf sounds, sci-fi influenced songs, straight ahead surfers, a rockabilly stomper, plenty of reverb, and more.

This is a co-release from Greece’s Surf Cookie Records, and Canada’s Reverb Ranch.
