artworkThis four song seven inch single from Brazil is garagy and crash chord focused, with some interesting moments. It blends surf and garage and frat in a different way than I've heard before. All instro, like a slow stomp version of Satan's Pilgrims.

Track by Track Review


A Trieste Fim de Josefel Zanatas dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Grumbling drums roll out a near "Wipe Out" introduction before the guitar slides into a melody line that rolls and tumbles. Double picked riffs and big crash chords, plus damped surfisms and garage edge.

Hajii dotdotdot
Carnival Surf (Instrumental)

A one note surf guitar introduction evolves into support for a carnival organ with a playful lilt. The chard chord break is more trash than surf. Quite unusual.

Fuca Bala dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Big trash surf in a frat kinda mold, with lots of crash chord action and a bass focus. The guitars mostly crash out chords or noodle in a jam. The damped surf rhythm is cool.

Infernao dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A dramatic chord rhythm over slow deliberate drums support a lead guitar playing a bluesy sorta jam. Somewhat Spanish, somewhat garagy, and loud.
