Track by Track Review


Bossa-Nova dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

"Bossa-Nova" is a playfully light instro with a very warm melody. I'm not sure of the original title because there are so many songs called bossa nova. Pretty fun in a sort of "Brazil" fashion. It ends with deluxe surf whammy.

Ukraina dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

Light double picked guitar transitions, cheesy organ, and light bass and drums. "Ukraina" is an easy listen with a blend of influences. The galloping horse rhythm in the break while the organ goes bonkers is very interesting. Tasteful.

Nebeski Jahaci dotdotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

This is a wholly original cover of Stan Jones' classic "(Ghost) Riders In The Sky." Infectious rhythm guitar, distant organ, and cool guitar with occasional surf chokes and a touch of reverb, along with surf whammy, all make for a splendid adventure in original sound.
