Mitch Schecter - Surfer's Lament
Prog Surf (Instrumental)
"Surfer's Lament" is a slow and moody number with haunting delay on the guitar. Its island imagery is persuasive, bringing forth a stormy lagoon. The melody repeats for a very long time. It makes for a good mood piece, but didn't hold my attention as a main focus at all. Part of this is its structure, which seems to me to be from an almost prog point of view.
