Track by Track Review


High Octane dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Big chunk and pumpin' surf generally of the frat party variety, with a rockin' surf riff and beer induced intensity. Gets yur attention, Fosters or not.

Downshiftin' dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Don't let the first few delicate verses fool you, 'cuz soon enough they launch into hard drivin' surf riffology with a rock solid backtrack. Tuff enough!

Special X200 dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is one solid surf rocker! fast and reverby, "Special X200" powers and splashes with fire and ice. Big surf looms on the horizon as the oblivious dodge and cut back on tight shorebreak. Excellent damped reverb and big chord chunk. A great song for the curl rider and hodad alike.

Pedal Pusher dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The Ventures' "Pedal Pusher" is reverently redefined with reverb and power. Solid bass and that pulsing organ bridge drive it to the metal.
