The Shockwave! - Contact From Space CD (Double Crown)
It's the 2nd full-length CD by The Shockwave!, a Finland based 4-piece that has recorded an (inter)stellar set of instrumental rock n' roll tunes, with a couple of covers that will appeal to fans of pop music from the 80's (Cyndi Lauper & A-ha). Their debut was released by Gas/Goofin' Records, and won the band a legion of fans all over the globe. This release takes their sound even further, embracing modern and traditional surf, as well as the beloved Rautalanka sound of their home country. The cover artwork for this digipak was created by the incomparable Fred Lammers.
