Limited to 750 copies! There couldnâ€™t be a better title than Surf N Turf for a split 7â€ť between Portland, Oregonâ€™s Guantanamo Baywatch and Nashville, Tennesseeâ€™s Natural Child. While Guantanamo Baywatch bask in the coastal traditions of surf rock, Natural Child deliver the backwoods boogie of the landlocked Southern interior. To be fair, thereâ€™s much more to GB than vibrato-soaked Mosrite guitars. The recent Suicide Squeeze signees offset their Dick Dale-styled twang with the trashy hybrid of garage punk and surf rock spewed out by The Mummies. Sure, â€śRaunch Stompâ€ť is in step with the Venturesâ€™ tremolo-picking tradition, but a song like â€śLove This Timeâ€ť explains why the band spent time on the boisterous Dirtnap Records roster. Neither is Natural Child to be mistaken for mere good olâ€™ boy sons of Skynyrd. Though theyâ€™ve certainly got a knack for a country-fried ballad (as evidenced on â€śDonâ€™t Wake The Babyâ€ť) or a sweetly stoned fuzzed-out lead on guitar, the trio are better suited for sharing a beer-soaked bar stage with fellow Nashevillians JEFF the Brotherhood and Heavy Cream than headlining the mainstage at the state fair. Surf N Turf is available as a limited edition 7â€ť (125 copies on opaque red vinyl, 125 on a green and lavender mix, and 500 on black) with a download coupon. The songs are also available digitally worldwide.
