"The longing that brings one here with a lot of reverb, it's sip directly under the skin."

I’m working on a real post about the relationship between music and story, but in the meantime please enjoy a fun track from As the Dark Wave Swells, the most recent release from Croatian surf-rockers, The Bambi Molesters:

The Bambi Molesters, “Siboney”

According to a German review of the album (and thanks to Google Translate):

Nine years of waiting have paid off: Just killer, no fillers. The world, it can be so unfair: Scrap soulless filled to the brim of the charts, wonderful music, when every note comes to the soul, remains unheard. No, “As the dark wave swells” must not go unheard.

Let the success to come in waves.

And as a bonus, here’s a video produced for the album’s title track:

    Love the horns. Also: how did you discover this?

    • Yeah, the album’s actually a bit more filler than the German reviewer let’s on, but it’s definitely fun. It was posted to a blog I occasionally drop by. Never heard of them before, but Michael Stipe apparently had them opening for REM on a tour several years ago.

        Nice cocktail music, but perhaps I’m just saying that because a bar I like here, the Tornado Room, often plays surf rock. Cool pick, regardless!
