Track by Track Review


Surf Symphony dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a very dark and moody number, particularly in the boomy bass and machine drum sounds. keys provide a sense of orchestra, adding drama to this spatial and dangerous number. "Surf Symphony" attempts to be just what its name implies. Ambitious and fun.

Gonzales dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Cowboy drums and surf tone do a superb job with the Shadows' "Gonzales." This is a very enjoyable track with great reverb and rhythm. A little more upfront mix on the lead would help it, but it still works really well.
