Razorcake Podcast #825 Surf Music with Sean and Todd

May 12, 2023

As a follow up to my “One Punk’s Guide to Surf Music” that ran in the last two issues of Razorcake (#132 and #133), I grabbed some surf records and headed down the Razorcake HQ to spin these with Todd. I had the best intentions to record podcasts that showcase the bands I featured in my article, but that’s not what this is. Instead, I dug into the surf records I’d been listening to the most lately. Since I’d already done a two-part history, I wanted to share a little more of the contemporary.
