Info

 

Halfway between LA and Phoenix on a desolate stretch of I-10 lies Desert Center, a mostly abandoned town that mainly serves as a gas stop along the barren interior of California. Portland punks Guantanamo Baywatch, like so many touring bands, have passed through the town countless times on their way between shows. But the town has also become a particular source of inspiration for guitarist/vocalist Jason Powell, who recently relocated from Oregon to Arizona. It may seem ironic that a band that draws so heavily from surf rock would find their muse in a location so far from the beach, but it’s not as if The Ventures were hitting the waves in their hometown of Tacoma or Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet were waxing their boards in Toronto. Truth is, Desert Center was the place where Powell first farted in front of his girlfriend, resulting in their use of “desert centering” as code for passing gas. But Guantanamo Baywatch’s new album Desert Center isn’t an ode to bodily functions or breaking down comfort barriers within relationships. Rather, it’s a perfect reminder of the ecstatic rabble-rousing documentation of life in America’s lonely outposts offered up by that first wave of electric guitar pioneers.

RAEBURN

Hailing from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Raeburn is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist and producer Maxwell Raeburn Warner. His recent debut LP "Wessi Pessi" is a mixture of breezy indie rock churned with heavy surf-esque grenades that make you dream of warm evenings, drinking on beaches, and that first kiss. Whether you're looking to relax, rage, or tune out, Raeburn will take you to where you want to be going.
