Track by Track Review


Babies dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Cruddy ambient audio aside, "Babies" is a cool song for instrumental treatment. An easy flowing melody glides out from a solid backup. The arrangement seems really solid too.

Tequila dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Chuck Rio's rockin' classic is done for fun, and that's just what happens - fun. Slightly restrained, but somehow that seems to add to the infectiousness. Quite good!

Wipe Out dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Wipe Out" seems to work better than you'd expect in such a light arrangement. Precise, fun, and sporting a very original break.
