today i discovered that i think i LOVE surfer rock. i think it's the wet spring reverb of the guitar that i just can't get enough of... and the reason i think that is because i had to google it. in fact, first i had to think of how i could even google "what is that guitar sound common in surfer rock songs where the guitar notes go wonky?"
this all started because earlier today pandora play a surfer rock song on my velvet underground radio station. or something. ehh it might have been my serge gainsbourg station. it was a song by the blue stingrays, and i've been listening to it while writing this post ever since. so, if you like surfer rock or the raveonettes or other stuff with that wet spring reverb, check it out.
