artworkThe Corsairs are from Santa Rosa, California, just a few miles from Olima, the epicenter of the '06 earthquake and the object-town of the Youngbloods answer to "Okie From Muskogee" called "Hippy From Olima." Three original demos on their way to becoming solid surf instros.
Picks: Agent 13, High Compression, Midnight Surf

Track by Track Review


Agent 13 dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Surf chords, spy ideas, a surfable riff, and big twang chords, plus a few glissandoes. Add a few string swipes and some double picking, and you have an aggressive short board romp.

High Compression dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"High Compression" is a fast ride on a dangerous reef break. Speedy glissandoes, surf thrash, spunk and punk edge, and lots of cutting back. More spirit and abandon than style, yet very cool.

Midnight Surf dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Slowing things down a bit, this song sports a good melody that projects warm summer nights gazing at the breakwater. This is quite a satisfying track, with a semi tropical south of the border sound. "Midnight Surf" is not the Johnny Fortune song.
