Swami John Reis & The Blind Shake ready LP, tour (2015)

Swami John Reis & The Blind Shake pay tribute to the classic surf and rock n roll instrumentals of the 1960s and the more introspective music of the 1970s surf films and update the genre for today’s more credible, discerning and extreme, modern surfer with their new album Modern Surf Classics, out January 27, 2015 on Swami Records.
Thirteen original, modern surf compositions create this tidal wave of booming tom toms, skronking saxophones and a chaotic surge of guitars. It was recorded in January 2013 underneath Crystal Pier in the Pacific Beach part of San Diego, CA with the expertise of Ben Moore and an outfitted VW Van as a mobile recording unit.
You can catch Swami John Reis & The Blind Shake live in February when they begin their tour on the 12th at SF’s Bottom of the Hill.
