Track by Track Review


Party Wave dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Relatively dry surfable instro with a pretty playful sound. The drums are surf, the bass almost, and the guitar in the vicinity most of the time. The double picked break is quite nice. "Party Wave" has the general feel of eighties surf instros.

Rip Tide dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a little cool and coastal, like a fall rain on the cove viewed from the bluff. Very pleasant, with a comforting feel. "Rip Tide" is none of thee others with this title.
