Collection: Surf Rock Coletaneadotdotdot
artworkSurf Rock Coletanea is a punk collection in the Brazilian sense. One instro from Retrofoguettes, a band I enjoy a lot, and one very unusual vocal tat has quite a bit of surf influence make this worth tracking down, especially is you also appreciate the punk side of Brazil's lively music scene.
Picks: Retrofoguetes - Surf-O-Matic, Sex Noise - Franzino Costela II

Track by Track Review


Retrofoguetes - Surf-O-Matic dotdotdotdot
Space Spy Surf (Instrumental)

"Surf-O-Matic" sports big twang chords and a mean garage riff over thump and thunder. This is a loud and powerful track that's out to get you. There's a vocal that circles through extreme effects, making it more like an instrument than words. Swimming whammy and power.

Sex Noise - Franzino Costela II dotdotdot
Surf Rock (Vocal)

This is a vocal, but the use of shimmering guitar and gutty bass are very compelling, and the vocals are narrated mostly. The break is very punky, but the track is unusual and very cool, with a psychedelic edge and surf underbelly.
