Track by Track Review


Supertubos dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Very cool raging drums and bass. The lead line is almost jazzy in a ringing blues surf sorta way. Quite nice.

Estacion Uranus dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Surfin' through the solar system to Uranus. The staccato melody hook & the whammy add up to an infectious track.

Twin Fin dotdotdot
Surfabilly (Instrumental)

Cow surf hickoidal riders of the 10 foot face. Very cool surfabilly tune with a tortured guitar lead.

Janas dotdotdotdot
Polynesian Surf (Instrumental)

Polynesian gentle ringing tones and a beautiful tune. I like this a lot.

Barefoot Adventure dotdotdotdot
Whammy Surf (Instrumental)

Very cool surfage. The drums pound and the bass thumps and the rhythm guitar is damped and so cool. The lead is very whammed and choppy. Infectious.

Jungle Strut dotdotdotdot
Bo Diddley Surf (Instrumental)

Bo Diddley beat and guitar riffs are the foundation for this very simple yet totally infectious track.

Zero Break dotdotdot
Austin Nashville Surf (Instrumental)

This has the feel of tracks that come from Austin or Nashville's fringes. A great beat and nifty guitar.

Corona Del Mar dotdotdot
Desert Island Surf (Instrumental)

Desert island warm summer day quiet lagoon driftin' on a longboard and saronged female forms on the beach. Just a few of the images this conjures. Yeow!

Gen-U-Ine dotdotdot
Progression Surf (Instrumental)

Chunky melody line with really nice textures. More a progression than a melody, but it works well.

Choroee dotdotdotdot
Tribal Quirky Surf (Instrumental)

Wow! What a cool tune this is! Tribal beats and perfect! Quirky and endearing.
