Bruut! & Anton Goudsmit Go Surfing

BRUUT! and Anton Goudsmit - Go Surfing. The five men dived into their grandparents' record cabinets and threw themselves into surf rock from the 60s. Hits by, among others, Dick Dale, The Beach Boys, The Ventures and Dolly Parton (Dolly Parton!?) are dusted down, thoroughly overhauled and made dirty again. The result is an album that sounds like it could just be the soundtrack to Tarantino's tenth film. Goudsmit's breathtaking, fast fingerwork and virtuosity gathers even more energy through the wild sound of BRUUT! In addition to surf era classics, the five have covered Tuyo (the title song of the Netflix series Narcos) with their rediscovered surf sound, and added their self-penned, blues-soaked song 'Brant!'.
