Have always loved this sound in general. It recalls, for me, instrumental surf of '59 - '64 before the Beatles arrived that February.
Way better than the album cover evoked!!!
I for one welcome our new overlords
When aliens watch nothing but the Lone Ranger tv shows before invading

Not sure I would give it a 9, but I like the band name.

Isotonic Records is a label founded in part by graphic artist Jorge Alderete.

Given the album cover I might have named this tune "Back to Roswell" instead.
Sounds a bit like pre-Calexico Friends of Dean Martinez.

Haha, okay, the Sonora closest to me, then. Makes sense.

I think it's a pretty cool cover - nice drawing, good colors - but the non-hyphenated break of the band name is a little disappointing.  The artwork looks like the work of Daniel Clowes - or someone mimicking his style.  Nice tune.

If you dig this you should also check out 'The Sandblasters'.

Surfs You Right, baby! 
Der Twangers need another gear in their transmission to pique my interest.
That is one ugly album cover.
... with a 2012 release date.  Hmmmm.
When this began to play, I thought it was going to be a Wesley Willis song.
Every surf rock song should have a bit of melancholy imho. This one's a nice example.

Perfect music while watching Cowboys vs. Aliens.
Country surf music ?  Not bad first listen.

OHHH no.  I don't wanna be the first to comment on this song. There's too much pressure on me to say something interesting or smart or even relevant. But I couldn't resist being first at SOMETHING> even if this song reminds me of Area 51.. no that's not a band reference, its the place where they have the aliens.
 
It's true... it has that "alien" feel. I really like it.
