Track by Track Review

Cavernicola dotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

"Cavernicola" relies heavily on a pulsing rhythm and cycling double picked guitar lines. It's very rock with aquatic feelings. This is an angular, intense, and unusual track that I found myself coming back to.

Cancerman dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

Here we find a combination of circular surfable riffs and big rock candy. Punchy, rhythmic, writhing with edge, and compelling. "Cancerman" is not particularly melodic, but it sure is cool!

Ruido Falso dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

A dark bass pulses as drums create a machine cadence. The guitars play a spy-like pattern, and as they evolve, they play off each other very well. The throbbing tremolo and fuzz section are extremely cool! Long sustain, Echoplex looping, and British new wave-like structures. I like this a lot!

Rusty dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

"Rusty" is a somewhat traditional psychedelic fuzz box groove, though the drums are quite modern. The keys, the guitars, and the bass create an updated vision of the large halls of the late sixties. Long sustain, double picked flurries, and more.
