Discover or revisit the original American surf music, or catch up with the latest surf vibes from more recent times.

tropical sunset A hot tip for a surfside soundtrack is a collection of tropical psychedelic grooves from South Korean band CHS featuring guitarist Hyunseok Choi from the indie-rock group Apollo 18.

Images of dreamy tropical beaches with warm breezes, gently crashing waves and rustling palm trees are conjured up through laid-back instrumentals (mostly), with slide guitar, keyboard, cymbal crashes, surf crescendos, and subtle percussion on the latest EP release from CHS, 정글사우나 (Jungle Sauna), a musical style that in many ways continues on from where the track Albatross from Fleetwood Mac left us back in 1968.

For a more up-to-date experience, the laid-back Texan Kings and Queen of sunny days, Khruangbin and friends deliver a sublime, worldly musical experience you can drift along with for a while.
