Track by Track Review
A strollin' blues, with a raspy sax lead and a grode guitar chord progression. Saucy, but surfless.
More like the Halibuts of old, this is a happier than happy tune, melodic as they come, and entirely infectious. The playfulness of the melody brings a grin, while the rhythm section keeps you rolling down the highway. It is the happy side of this song that makes it so special.
Indian almost sitar feeling, this eerie track is very ambient and reverbed out, as if recorded in a warehouse. The guitar line is repetitious but effective. More a backwash of sound than a song.
Slow and playful ode to the street of desire and no worry life. This is a very melodic and pretty track. It has all the finesse it needs, and plenty of twang. Great for a stroll down the boulevard of life.
