|Only one of these three demos ended up on their CD. The first two sound like rehearsal recordings of perhaps the most surfable songs in their repertoire.|
Picks: Achilles Heel, Sincest, Tom Samson Can Carry Two Conversations At Once
Track by Track Review
The song is pretty surfy, with an excellent guitar melody and solid beat. Mid-song, it slows like shorebreak, but otherwise "Achilles Heel" is very cool. The damped reverb lines are pure surf! This harsh stereo demo sounds like it's from a rehearsal.
"Sincest" is an uncharacteristically short song. At under a minute, it's a combination of cowboy and surf and rhythmic undulation. Very cool, with a hurried and intense energy.
Tom Samson Can Carry Two Conversations At Once
"Tom Samson Can Carry Two Conversations At Once" is an excellent instro with a fine melody line and rhythmic appeal. On the dark side, and atmospheric too. Drama, mystery, and a sense of the frontier.
