Hi all! We, Zak and the Krakens, just released our second original album on most digital platforms. It is in the style of 60s surf instrumental music but with a modern touch. The main guitar sound is a strat into a tube reverb tank into a '73 super reverb; I used the occasional pedal for dirt or other flavor here and there. The whole album was recorded with a single MIA strat with fat 50s.

I am using a lot the bridge+neck combination. I think it is a pity strats aren't wired with that option by default. You can hear it clearly in the Spaghetti Theory song. Also the amp is at the sweet spot, I really like that tone :D

I hope you get even a little bit happier by listening to our music :)

I just downloaded it. I just listened the a few bits and pieces and really like it so far. It’ll be my music for my run in the morning. Thanks.

This album is great. I like The Shadows and The Ventures a lot, but I always feel like there’s something missing, like they should take it a little further. Your album has more punch and interesting dynamics. I’ve been listening to it while driving today. I like the artwork and ‘50s sci fi theme too.

Highly recommend to anyone that likes Surf Rock.
