Track by Track Review


Swamp Walk dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is quite a hybrid track, with dry surf rhythm guitar and reverbed lead guitar playing a very surfable melody line, supported by a tweaky post modern synth, bass, and drums. Intriguing for it's odd nature, enjoyable despite the syndrum, and quite fluid.

New Arabian Nights dotdotdot
Postmodern Surf (Instrumental)

Electro percussion under big synthesized guitar, like an early wet dream from which evolved Get Wet. Dark like Joy Division, exotic like "White Sands," and thumpy thick like urban decay. These elements portray a post Armageddon desert oasis with android Bedouins descending upon the indigenous few. Relentless and exotic.
