Track by Track Review


Areeeeva IV dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Wipe out drums splash up the opening of this raucous instro. Glissandos and surf chords played with rock tone drive the melody. Panned screams add exuberance. "Areeeeva IV" is a very spunky track with an infectious melody and open road feeling.

On Stage dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A bit of a robot beat, dangerously tense guitar, dark surf picking, and an ominous feeling make "On Stage" a powerful track.

Robota dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Rolling drums and big twang swimming in reverb power out a flying double picked set of lines separated by long note melodies. "Robota" is big and infectious.

Theme For You dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

melodic an rhythmic, "Theme For You" sports an engaging theme and fairly dry surf attack. Upbeat, slightly cautious, and very nicely developed. Glissandos and other surfisms set the stage. Very nice!
