Artist: The Astroglides
Title: Channel Surfing With...The Astroglides
Genre: Instrumental/Surf/Rock
Label: Fast Music-www.fastmusic.com
Website: www.astroglides.com

Surf-Instrumental bands can come from anywhere other than a sandy beach in sunny California, but if you are an instro fan you already knew that anyway. The Astroglides hail from Israel. After listening to their music, it became clear relatively quickly that they already have the vision of waves and a sunny beach permanently imprinted in their minds.

Once you listen to their new CD Channel Surfing With...The Astroglides all of the influences from traditional surf to third wave come through loud and clear. They call their sound surf-core, which has a traditional surf-instro base with heavy driving guitar parts, similar to metal (played rapidly but not speed metal) or something Man or Astroman would do. It is a very cool sound and I really enjoyed it. This surf-core sound is displayed beautifully on "Nervous Man In A $4 Room," "Pascua Negra" and "Meat Cleavage" (love the title). All the other tracks are more third wave oriented, like The Space Cossacks. The one track that may turn some heads in their own country will be "Kabbalah Fucker" (Kabbalah is an aspect of Jewish mysticism).

The CD comes packaged uniquely with pictures of well-shaped women in various poses engaged in various sporting events topless. It is all very beachy I must say, and very sexist (which comes with the genre and history of the music), but eye catching just the same for the heterosexual male that appreciates such cover art.

This is a fantastic group of songs, all well done. This band has balls and is not afraid to say what they feel without having to use any words. All they need is their gutsy music and very suggestive titles to make their point.
