Track by Track Review

Campeonato Mineiro de Surfe dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Campeonato Mineiro de Surfe" is based on chunky riff-melodic guitar roots rock with a sense of the shoreline and lots of spunk. "Primeiro Campeonato Mineiro de Surfe" is a gutsy riff rocker with splash cords and simplicity. The break is slower and really cool! Structurally, it's not too distant from surf's roots, but it's all modern garage surf.

Low Flow dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Very nice tone colors leisurely chords that present a lazy afternoon view of the bay. Note bending and a moody bass line with gentle drums eventually yield to a louder performance, which works equally well. A very cool track.
