Vista Cruiser lands firmly between "Psychobilly Freakout" and Calexico's "The Black Light". With a zesty raw Tex-Mex feeling, they balance tremolo and twang with groove and grind. They serve up their love for vintage sounds with this very tasty treat. More surfy sounding than their previous one - Avanti - this feels equally at home in the barroom, at the BBQ, or on the beach - and -- in the car.
Here are 8 hioctane originals and and covers of The Bel-Aires, the Surftones, and a rewrite of the Sadies - Rat Creek. Good stuff all over.
