Tijuana Panthers are a Long Beach, California band that makes some modern surf rock. It is lo-fi and doesn't rely super heavily on reverbed guitar as has been the case in the past with surf bands. Rather they do craft some catchy, pop-like songs with quick-paced drums and mildly fuzzed guitar. Generally a pleasant and far from overwhelming affair. The songs where the get a bit more retro in their sound like "New Boots" and "Redheaded Girl" are neat. Almost feels like they could've been doing gigs with the Surfaris and their ilk back in the 60s when really work that way-back machine. They can pick it up and move it too, which is nice to hear both. Plus I saw they're playing a show with Ty Segall soon, so that is pretty rad.
