Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Collection: Delightful Rain (4 Track Pre Release Promotional CD)
|Delightful Rain is a labor of love, a long-held dream to gather legends of Australian music who surf or play surf, and capture them in live performance. These tracks are all ambiently captured in a large room, and the results are surprisingly good. Half the CD is vocal, with a track from the amazing Celibate Rifles. |
This particular configuration is a promotional CD found is some Music trade magazines and distributed to media. It's not commercially available, and contains nothing that isn't also on the CD release, or the DVD for that matter.
Picks: The Atlantics - Wedding Cake Island, The Dan Rumour Band - Shadder
Track by Track Review
The Atlantics - Wedding Cake Island
Brilliant drums and grumbly bass drive a beautiful song presented through shimmering second guitar and long delay lead lead. The Atlantics continue to be able to generate wonderful new material, and they play superbly. This is a powerful and beautiful track.
The Dan Rumour Band - Shadder
"Shadder" is a very spatial piece of music that's lushly visual. It invokes a gentle rain on a lagoon, a slightly sad feeling with a sense of being cleansed by the rain. The melody is so very gentle and peaceful. Wonderful!
