Spirit Of Akasha & Morning Of The Earth Soundtracks




A reminder- we have the US exclusive on these utterly fine soundtrack albums, and in a very zeitgeist Record Store Day manner, there's vinyl as well as CD. 'Spirit Of Akasha' featuring The Windy Hills, Grouplove, Atoms For Peace, Pond, The Dirty Three, Matt Corby, Tom Curren, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and many more. Vinyl is double gatefold and CDs come as a regular double or the deluxe double with a grand little book. 'Morning Of The Earth' should need no introduction, it's a classic surf soundtrack and a wonderful collection of Aussie psych/folk from a very fertile and creative era. Double vinyl is the original masterpiece with Tamam Shud, Brian Cadd, G. Wayne Thomas and more. The CD features not only the original soundtrack but the 'Reimagined' version where the original songs are covered by many of the same artists from the 'Akasha' collection, and the deluxe CD features a fantastic mini book with Albie Falzon's photos.  LPs are $35, deluxe Cds $25 and regular CDs $15. Essential stuff, and yours by emailing info @ foamandfunction.com.

And he does it really, really well. This clip has been floating around Instagram in chunks and comes from What Youth?, but in case you haven't seen it here's the full deal. In fact if you have seen it, it's worth watching again- that barrel!

Board Of The Week/Month/Year? Parmenter 6'3" 6 Channel




6'3" x 19.75" x 2.65" $850
This board's big sister, a 6'6", has become the go to board around here. I believe it's a surfboard that has evolved into it's most perfect form. It simply cannot be improved upon. It feels amazing- under the arm, as you paddle, as you ride. Smooth, fast and despite it's sleek racy look it works in waves of a lesser quality. Seriously good surfboard. If you want this one or a custom of your own, just email info @ foamandfunction.com.
