What is there to explain? These dudes play surf music. It’s the same surf music that has existed for years. If you need to pretend that Dick Dale is still prime and making records, here you go. There is nothing particularly bad about this record, but I always viewed surf music as incidental music. The kind that plays in the background of beach scenes in crappy movies or on a commercial for a water park. I will admit that the record didn’t put me to sleep entirely. There were a few sections where they get weird and sound like Dinosaur Jr., but those aren’t all that plentiful. If you need a band to play high school surf prom, then check out Insect Surfers. If you don’t need a band for that, then I don’t know what to tell you. Grade: C.
