The Hypnomen - Wild Instrumental Masterpiecesdotdotdotdot
This Finish band reminds me a bit of the Bottle Ups, both using very heavy vibrato throughout, and playing a very chunky Link Wray sort of thing. It was scheduled to be a 3 song ep, but "The Blackout" got left off in the mastering process, leaving "The Urge" as the A-side and as track 1 on the B-side, coupled with "Crime Wave". They refer to their music as "Wild Instrumental Masterpieces", and they are not understating it.
Picks: The Urge, Crime Wave

The Urge dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"The Urge" is very very Bottle Ups like. Shimmer and Hawaiian luau fun. Fifties exotica in a garage. I love it! Totally infectious.

Crime Wave dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Crime Wave" is a beautiful surf tune.
