Track by Track Review
This is a strongly reverbed and dribbled track, chunky and spiritously delivered. Whammy chorded, Surf Trio oriented, wetly picked. More than a progression, less than a melody. Cool track.
This is "Rumble On The Docks," originally done by the Vulcanes. It's not as thick, but has the edge. This is one of the great mean obscuros, so it's nice to hear someone covering it. This is more surf pristine and less evil, but it works really well.
Damped surf, plucked infectiously in a mid tempo twang tune. The double picked parts scream for the breaks to be applied, but alas there is no relief. This is much like a merger between the Vydells and the Pyramids. Pretty cool.
With a stormy intensity, this churns out a warning to all who ride the curl on the coast. It's somewhat dangerous, and yet not hazardous. A solid track.
