Track by Track Review


Threshold dotdotdot
Psychedelic Surf (Instrumental)

This is a spooky psychedelic water works, full of slow moody bass lines and echoed guitar. Moody and depressed, "Threshold" is like an impending funeral on the waters where a life was lost. The swells gently rise and fall as the last good-byes are said. This is a very cool song!

Cannibals dotdotdotdot
Surfabilly (Instrumental)

Tribal drums, pick slide jungle sounds, natives chanting in a foreign tongue, and a ton of suave swimming power whammied for power, with deep low-E double picked transitions. Very powerful and dark.
