Track by Track Review


Land Of Alohas dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a splashy reinvention of The Pyramids' "Pressure." Raucous and pounding, with significant deviations from the original intent, which work pretty darn well.

El Sicko dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Stinging tremolo Link Wray-ish chords, a simple progression, and a garagy sound. Seething with urgency and angst, and dangerously throbbing.

Lost Paradise dotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Cruddy lo-fi surf based fun with cool drums and garage spunk. "Lost Paradise" could have come from any one of the nineties lo-fi trad bands.
