Track by Track Review


Motocross dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Motocross"is a dark riff rock thumper with a gutty edge and trembling sustain. If Link Wray arrived fifty years later, he might have been a punk and played this sort of simple dark sound. Way cool!

Submarino dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Submarino" is a fast and dangerous punky instro with injected screaming that gives it a Japanese garage feel, and oh-ahh humming that brings a slight Middle Eastern edge. Short and interesting.

Copersucar (Instrumental) dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is more than a backtrack to the vocal version, but with the drums so up front, it seems like a backtrack. Melodic and afternoon pleasant, but also a bit mean. I would guess that "Copersucar" could really be fleshed out as a solid instro.
