Los Daytonas are a genuine instrumental surf band from Madrid (Spain) established in 1997. Their new LP “Twang Or Die” includes 8 original tunes plus 3 covers on a 180gr. black vinyl.
Although this is a classic instrumental surf album, you will find a cool mix of styles such as: Hot Rod (Big Rod), Spy (La Tapadera), Western (Mátalos Y Vuelve) and various Exotica inspired tracks!!
The album was recorded live in one of the most truly retro studios in Spain: Big Cheff Recording Service; using 40’s, 50’s & 60’s equipment & backline. Mastered at Lightning Recorders, Berlin. Both running through a 100% vintage analogue processing.
Produced by Mike Medianoche & Los Daytonas, this recording has plenty of exciting arrangements using castanets, great choirs, tenor sax, organ, vibraphone, marimba & lots of percussion in order to achieve a very dynamic & unique listening experience.
If you enjoy the classic instro twangy sounds from the late 50’s to the mid 60’s era, you shouldn’t miss this BOSS band from Spain!!
