The Truants

There are a bunch of surf rock bands nowadays. It’s another trend that’s starting to spread like wildfire. As a result, it becomes easy to dismiss a good majority of them. Some of them downright suck, while some of them just plain don’t know what they’re doing. However, it’s refreshing to hear a band that goes a different route. One of these bands is the Truants.

I don’t have a clue about this band. I’ve tried looking them up, but all I get is another band called the Truants that sound like they listen to the Strokes WAY too much. From what I can gather, this is a completely different group. They appeared on a compilation called the Surf Creature, which is where this track comes from. The track, Sunset Surf, caught my ear. Maybe I’ve been watching too many episodes of Twin Peaks this week (I killed the entire series in the past 2 weeks), but the track has that drudgy guitar at the beginning that reminds me of bits of Angelo Badalamenti’s score for the TV show. I dig it. A lot.

You can listen to the track below. If you like it, go over to Aquarium Drunkard to grab it. It’s an awesome track. I don’t know if I’ll ever hear more from this band or what, but after hearing this, I hope I do.

    This has nothing to do with The Truants, who are great.

    Just curious when you’re going to stop doing your blog?
