Track by Track Review
"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.
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.
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.
