Contemporary surf band Los Javelin could have fit in on Sabor Surf as they mimic the sound of the movement’s dawn with startling precision. Founded in 2001, the Caracas-based band captures the Venezuelan surf rock essence by hanging on to surf’s classic aesthetics. “We preserve surf’s classic sound by using vintage instrumentation,” says Dr. Staccato, Los Javelin’s primary guitarist. “Our ideology is twang.” Aside from their high fidelity sounds and explicit nods to early psych rock, any of Los Javelin’s tracks could undoubtedly pass as songs dug up from an out-of-print surf music 7-inch sold for small change at a Venezuelan thrift store. --- By Luis Minvielle · "A Brief History of South American Surf Rock" · Bandcamp Daily · November 12, 2021
