[CONTEMPORARY SURF] There’s the classic, clean-cut surf music of Dick Dale and the Beach Boys—and then there’s the shaggy, contemporary surf of bands like local four-piece the Shivas, who spike the genre’s pop with psych and garage for a waterlogged, sand-clogged and sun-dazed feel. If “Surfin’ Safari” sounds like strolling on the Santa Monica pier while eating cotton candy, Whiteout!, the LP the Shivas released on K Records last month, is like loitering on the Venice boardwalk, smoking a joint.
