Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Collection: That Thing That You Do [Soundtrack]
|This film about a made up band with a made up Beatles-like history produced a mighty well done soundtrack full of mid-sixties pop stylings. Among the tracks are three instros, including one surf instro with great appeal.|
Picks: Voyage Around The Moon, Shrimp Shack, Time To Blow
Track by Track Review
Space Surf (Instrumental)
This is a splendid surf instro, with tasty guitar work and tight glissandoes. The organ is subtle enough, and the twang just right. It's mid tempo but well powered, clean and catchy. It's got the right moves and is quite smooth. Very nice.
While this is somewhat derivative, it's also quite well done. It sports great drums, raspy sax, and very cool frat sensibilities (as opposed to neighborhood frat band trash). Lots of fun, though no surf influences at all.
Piano Bar (Instrumental)
This is an archetypal piano lounge jazz groove with lots of style and genre perfect cool. Fun, but unremarkable.
