Artist: Various
Title: Swivlin Wahine
Label: Skully Records (www.skullyrecords.com)

What do we have here? Another surf-instro compilation? Yes indeed, and a double CD! Skully Records has outdone everyone this year with a double whammy of some of the best surf, instro, and garage music put together on one disc. 35 tracks of great music that evokes images of beach culture, loud guitars and beautifully tanned beach bunnies waiting for their heroes to come in from the thundering waves.

If you are looking back in time or thinking about the present day…it all stands for the same thing, loud music, and fun in the sun. Plain and simple like the music that drives the stories, this is music to relate to. If you live in Minnesota or California, it doesn’t matter. Anyone with an ounce of Americana running through their veins can find some pleasure in this music. I personally love it, and I always have.

You will recognize some of the names and others you won’t. Some of the heavyweights of the genre make an appearance…Slacktone, The Balboas, The Exotics, The Aquamen, and Plank. The list is endless. Even the tracks with vocals are good. Now that says a mouthful regarding the quality and consistency of this recording. This CD doesn’t lack in any areas, it’s a real keeper.
