Track by Track Review
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.
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.
