artworkWith an auspicious title like The Intergalactic Birth Of Surf, you might expect a profound surf epic. Reeves Jones refers to it as "Mississippi Surf Music," and that really tells more of the tale. Progressive, blues inspired, and lightly fluid.

The Intergalactic Birth Of Surf dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a long and serious piece of music. The first third is an opening that's effects and a drone symbolizing the dawn of time (perhaps). The rest of the song is more surf friendly, though it's clearly from outside the genre in most ways. Dry chords and rhythm patterns that are more country than surf, yet it's also serviceable as a surf adventure soundtrack.
