The Giant Robots - Invasion!dotdotdot
artworkThe Giant Robots' debut CD is more garagie and potent than their single of a few years back. Their whine and snarl are spot-on. This CD includes three instros, one somewhat surfy, the other two quite garagie. As a sixties influenced garage band, they are quite spunky and fun.
Picks: Shark Attack, Chubawunga, Untitled

Track by Track Review

Shark Attack dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

This garagie instro lives squarely in the pre-psych garage days of the early sixties, not quite Pacific Northwest like, but certainly of that churning chord dominated feel.

Chubawunga dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

A delicate drama foretells of the bright thunder of this track. It's slightly ominous, somewhat sad, and sports a fine sharp drum cadence. There's a cowboy out back somewhere, but mostly this has a Spanish feel, with a nicely double picked bridge.

Rock R&B (Instrumental)

This moment of softness is brought to you by... a silent seven second track, for what I know not. The musicianship is flawless, though unremarkable.
