The father of Ireland-based surf musician Johannes Bernardus Verhoef aka Magnatech passed away early this year, and after 9 months of mourning and reflection, he now pays a grand tribute. On his new album De Favorieten Expres! – the title refers to a Dutch series of popular singles from the 60s – the artist plays some of the songs his dad taught him to love: “All foundations of everything I know in music I learned from him.” Beautiful premise, well executed: you’ll hear eleven instrumental surf tunes with Indorock influences that will certainly appeal to fans of the genre.
De Favorieten Expres! is out now digitally and on CD through Sharawaji Records. The proceeds of this album will be donated to kidney and prostate research. The vintage cover art is by Julian Weber.
