Guantanamo Baywatch released ‘Chest Crawl’ (MP3), on tour, playing Cake Shop

DOWNLOAD: Guantanamo Baywatch – Boomerenga (MP3)

Portland, OR does not have a beach but that hasn’t stopped trio Guantanamo Baywatch from kicking out vintage-sounding twangy surf rock infused with a twisted sense of glee. And when it comes to a genre like this, enthusiasm counts for a lot. They are also not afraid to give a song a “cha cha cha” ending, something I secretly wish bands would do more. Their new album, Chest Crawl, out now via Dirtnap, is a good time tiki party with extra-spiked punch. You can download “Boomeranga” at the top of this post.

Guantanamo Baywatch are currently on tour and hit NYC on Wednesday, July 11 for a show at Cake Shop with local punks The Numerators. All tour dates are listed at below.
