artworkAmid very poorly and inconsistently mixed vocals are two aurally unattractive instros. The music here is mostly hypnotic, non-melodic, and mixed such that it's difficult to keep paying attention. More psychedelic than surf, but there are aquatic moments.
Picks: Nessuno Ritorna, Speaks With No Words

Track by Track Review


Nessuno Ritorna dotdotdot
Psychedelic Spaghetti Surf (Instrumental)

This is a slowly building spaghetti western number with a murky darkness and eventual galloping rhythm. Surfish guitar, haunted chorus with classic Ennio Morrecone chants. There are just enough evolving changes to keep "Nessuno Ritorna" from losing focus, yet it expresses a relative sameness.

Speaks With No Words dotdotdot
Psychedelic Spaghetti Surf (Instrumental)

Spooky boomy drums roll in the distance to create a thunder like Indian ambiance. The Indian beat becomes the base line while guitars wash a psychedelic haze over a desert scene. Hypnotic, non-melodic, and visual.
