Los Coronas - S/Tdotdotdot
artworkLos Coronas have generally released better than this, but then again, this is early in the lads career. It's boomy sounding, but fairly clean, though not very detailed or close sounding. Great band, OK release.
Picks: Tormenta, Big Boy, Secret Agent Man

Track by Track Review


Tormenta dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Slow, rhythmically gentle, surfy enough, with Spanish influences. Quite pretty actually. The melody is not very memorable, more like a progression than anything else. Bluesy and slightly dramatic.

Big Boy dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Faster paced, vibrato reverb twang, very playful, and very infectious. Images of children playing in the Sweetwater, maidens frolicking on the sand, a bit of country, a spot of the sea, and a rolling rhythm. What more is needed? Damn fine track.

Secret Agent Man dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a mediocre cover of the Johnny Rivers hit. I'll pass, thank you.
