|So, if you take the Mermen's melody structures, Slacktone's slower side, and add a dash of eerie, you get this fresh new East coast band. I expected much less, but was really quite impressed. Beautiful writing and great sound. No dogs in the lot, and I came back to it several times before putting it down to review.|
Picks: Curb Urchin, Theme From Headtrader, Junction City, Uneasy Street, The Mole, Latin Quarter
Track by Track Review
Psychedelic Atmospheric Surf (Instrumental)
Somewhere between the Mermen and Slacktone's slower side. Atmospheric and melodic and surfy. Great tune.
Shimmering Vibrato Surf (Instrumental)
"Peter Gunn"-ish mid-slow with bowed bass and low growls and shimmering vibrato. Really cool.
Sparse Vibrato Surf (Instrumental)
A sparse number with a simple but compelling melody line employing vibrato and whammy.
TV Detective Theme (Instrumental)
Earl Stanley Gardner / Henry Mancini slow vibrato eerie. The bowed bass is a nice touch. Just not surfy enough for this web place.
Spaghetti Poi Surf (Instrumental)
Wow. What an atmospheric mid tempo tune! Somewhere between spaghetti and poi.
Salsa Surf (Instrumental)
Quirky Latin Salsa jazzy tune with great tones and surfisms. Amazing at the edge humor.
