|This modern psych-pop band has issued a couple of darn good instros, one psych, one surf.|
Picks: The Symphonette, Surf Babe
Track by Track Review
"The Symphonette" is a melodic and powerful jangle instro with an interesting progression and round full bass. It moves slowly and deliberately to great effect, though as the drama builds, it speeds some and slows too. Psychedelic and intense.
"Surf Babe" is surf in the sense that eighties LA instros were. You'll hear Tommy and the Piers and Evan Johns and the H-Bombs influences quite clearly. Intense, brittle, and a retro bruiser.
