Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Giant Robots - Invasion!
|The 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
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.
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.
