artworkWhat a cool Christmas release! Just two songs, but worth hunting down. The instro is utterly unique and heavily reverbed, and is infused with modern ideas. the vocal is just plain fun.
Picks: La Mar i Morena, Waikiki Xmas

Track by Track Review

La Mar i Morena dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"La Mar i Morena" sports an interesting blend of sounds and exotic snare with very heavy surf reverb and thundering bass. Very heavy and rhythmic, and attractive in a demanding kinda way. Really unique and modern use of the trad form. Great and frequent glissandos, and plenty of changes!

"La Mar i Morena" is based in a traditional Spanish Xmas song. The translation means something like "The sea and the Black-Haired Girl". The unique introduction is done with a zambomba (Spanish traditional Xmas instrument) plus a liquor ragged bottle and a wooden stick!

Waikiki Xmas dotdotdot
Surf (Vocal)

Da Surfones sing of being stranded in Waikiki without a job in December. It's compete with faux Beach Boys doo-wop harmonies. very cool.
