Track by Track Review


Sagaz! dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The water gently laps at the sand, but "Sagaz!" is on the faster side with an AABA melody structure, long ringing chord bridges that suggest Link Wray at the beach. Sometimes on the jammy side, but sporting a pretty fun riff.

Miami Beach dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

On the light side, with drums against glissandos, and a cycling riff. Fun energy, and occasional long chords, but mostly, "Miami Beach" is jam-like. The moody bass and chords in the break, and the dual guitar verse following are cool.

Caixote Open dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Jammin' rock with surf edges and some speedy notes. The melody riff is almost chicken bop. "Caixote Open" is a really fun track.
