The Volcanics - Concrete Carver CD (Hi-Tide)

Southern California’s favorite trad-surf trio are back in their matching cardigans, guitar, bass, drums and reverb tank, delivering a dozen brand new, original, soon-to-be classics. At times I hear some people say they adhere too much to the sound of the early 60’s, or that they are just a fun, good-time surf rock band. They definitely are guilty of putting on a great, entertaining and energetic live show, but if you give their records a serious listen you’ll hear a band that are not only fans of traditional style surf rock, they work on their songs ceaselessly. This effort shows in this recording - while you’ll hear the reverb-drenched, vintage surf sound, you’ll also hear songs that find originality as well. As I listen to this album over repeated listenings, I don’t hear a band that sounds like X or Y. The title track, which kicks off the album, is one of the top tracks - just a classic tune to start with. Moving beyond that highlights include “The Ripper” and “Lost Souls”, and the unexpected, fuzz-laden “Knockout”. For fans of organ in surf music, you'll dig “Nowhere Special” which features some great melodic interplay between the organ and guitar. The comic book style cover art is fun and eye-catching as well. The summer of 2022 is shaping up to be a great one for new surf releases, thanks in large part to this disc from The Volcanics.
