Info

Bloomington, IN locals TRIPTIDES are no strangers to summertime jams and feel-good melodies, having spent the last 3 years self-releasing cassettes as well as high-profile releases on European labels STROLL ON RECORDS and CROQUE MACADAM. As an homage to their 60’s beach-pop roots, Fucking on the Beach is a short & sweet cassingle chronicling the sex life of a dashing young surfer – attraction and rejection, flying high and swimming low. Recorded by the band entirely to 1/8″ cassette 8-track, their trademark lo-fi sound is enhanced all the more by the vintage beachfront artwork attached to the upcycled Capri Sun pouch (a true artifact of summertime adventure). Coupled with the black & white mini postcard of a bodacious babe, Fucking on the Beach presents a vivid narrative of an everyman surfer trying to have a good time, in a simpler time.

Notice: Release contains download card which includes full-length edit of “Surf of Shame Home” as well as the tape edit version.
