The Deep End - Chicken Of The Seadotdotdotdot
A very nice cassette release from a good band with exceptional writing capability. The tracks are infectious and the band does not need to overpower you with volume or speed to get your attention. Quite a nice release.
Picks: Werewolves On Wheels, The Savage, Arubaderci, Alki Surf, The Sheik Of Hips, Silent Wave

Track by Track Review


Werewolves On Wheels dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Chunky driving rhythms and a very nice melody that's a bit Pollo Del Mar-ish. Lot's of stinging whammy accents.

The Savage dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A nice cover of the Shadows tune. Well played with lots of energy.

Arubaderci dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a totally KILLER version of one beautiful song! "Arubaderci" floats on a sea of thick whammy and romance, taking you drifting with it to a peaceful desert isle. Incredible!

Alki Surf dotdot
Lounge Spy Surf (Instrumental)

Loungie tune with an organ that fits but is too prominent in the mix. Spy quirkiness in a "Shots In The Dark" kinda way.

The Sheik Of Hips dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Arabian mysteries unfold through the smoothly haunting sound and infectious melody. This track belongs on a soundtrack somewhere! The circular melody is compelling, mysterious, and fluid. Over time, this song grows more and more on you.

Silent Wave dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Slow silky shimmering track, dripping offshore breezes and a glassy sea. Very romantic and pretty.
