|This is way outside of the mainstream of surf, yet it has a certain haunted oceanic sense and hidden vintage references peeking gently out from behind the curtain.|
Picks: The Sentinel
Track by Track Review
Surf Jazz (Instrumental)
Starting with slow, silky guitar and plaintiff female vocal, we eventually get to recognize the underlying influences of The Sentinals' "The Sentinal." There are many more differences than similarities, yet the reference is here. Influences aside, the sultry sound and progression augmented by the haunting female vocal gives "The Sentinel" a compelling sound. Dramatic drums sometimes add art to an already splendid arrangement.
