X-Ray Fiends are a great three piece from Auckland. In great fashion they (Kieran Ruffles, Antony Pike, and Callum Rooney) have fused together some electrifying surfin' guitar and some oh so psychedelic bass grooves all on top of some slammin' beats. It's easy to hear influences of Link Wray or Dick Dale, The Stooges, and a new favourite among a lot of us - Wooden Shjips (check out their facebook, and you'll see these influences too). Right now, they have two releases out, both released this Summer Season. The first, simply titled DEMO, is a lo-fi raw collection of four songs geared to make you move. Their second, Tsunami EP which was  released just yesterday, is a most fitting sequel and was recorded live. Tight knit live recordings are what we die for! Give these guys a listen and download their demo for FREE and donate a buck to get their equally awesome EP. And if you happen to be anywhere near Auckland, give them your eyes and ears and maybe a few bucks.
