Surf, surf surf. Surf. The Buttertones are from Hollywood, so we should expect this. The lyrics, though, impassioned and filled with bad puns, remind me more of psych-pop, which after all took something from surf rock by way of the garage. Geetars twang. A sax shrieks like a buried-alive shlub pounding on his interior casket lid. Two-headed sharks rear twin nasty heads. Geetars twang, ping, twang. Apparitions appear from between the dunes at sundown, reminding me that the surf sound leads to the haunted-house rock, too. Dead girlfriends, or at least girlfriends who may be dead, seem to occupy the singer’s mind. Like they said in Solaris (the second film version, the popular one): Will she come back? Do you want her to? ANDREW HAMLIN
