The Blue Hawaiians are a surf rock group from Los Angeles. They formed in 1994 to play at the opening of their friend Michelle's club, The Lava Lounge. They rose to fame soon thereafter due to the rise of one of their earliest fans, Quentin Tarantino, and an appearance on the soundtrack of the hit TV show Friends and the 1996 film Sex. The group have since released several albums which have generally fared well with critics

To this end, Sway stays afloat gracefully in uncharted waters with a sound that soothes, grooves, and cruises at modest speeds. Although the album's a bit formless as it strolls out of the starting gate, their premiere, Live at the Lava Lounge, opened in much the same way, building momentum as it progressed. Here, the album just starts to show flames curling around the edges by track three, the Mancini-penned "Banzai Pipeline. Michael Murphy adds the right age of cheese to the track on the Hammond B-3, here and elsewhere. The fun continues with a curtsey and a submissive smile.

Download Sway by The Blue Hawaiians on the independent record store by musicians for musicians. It sounds like it should have been on a Mancini album 30 years ago, but alas, it's a new song. Cool cocktail weirdness and kinky suave. Drop the hammer, max! Tribal George of the Jungle hula war toms, exotic chunka chunka, and a hint of Indian Puddin' & Pipe's trademark organ swirl. This is a damn infectious number, with spirited screams of joy, and a grand tom tom solo. You can see the bon fire, smell the poi, and almost feel the hula skirts.
